Sounds good! I'm guessing BMW is being cautious with that minimal thickness spec. Where I live, the shops (not all) use the min. thickness requirements to upsale new rotors. My wife's Subaru had rotors replaced under warranty a few years ago. Not long after, maybe 20-30k miles, an indie shop did a routine service, then called her up, saying she needed new pads and rotors, as hers were too thin. She didn't bite;
Absolutly. A lot of shops have two rate scales one for economy cars and a upscale rate for BMWs Lexus, and Mercedes. I used to call it the Yuppy tax. And they love to have single women and young people as customers. I will let you know how it goes.
Maybe they don't make em like they used to, but... I change rotors and pads together on my e46. I have turned them (the rotors) and they warped soon after. Going to buy an e36 for the stable and am curious about this issue.
