I figured, not much could be done. Given the situation, I'd be surprised if they didn't show me a $10k bill tomorrow.

Are these rotors OEM?
http://www.oembimmerparts.com/BMW_Coated_Front_or_Rear_Brake_Rotor_By_Meyle_p/34116753221-772085mye6x.htm

If not, who makes the OEM rotors? Zimmerman? Sebro?
