rotors are not needed everytime you do pads, that is just old school mentality. I am going on my 3rd set of rear pads on my X5 and the rotors are still in spec (never been cut) after 74k miles. They may not look new but perform as intended.

Certainly does not leave a favorable impression of BMW, continuously cutting corners with new gimmicks like run flats, oil changes, and now shoddy brake jobs.
