Like other have stated this might not be needed for your particular situation I am just letting you know that I have had drilled rotors turned.

Personally I think BMW says to not turn then as they want your $$$.

Post some pictures so others can chime in.

Here are the pictures. The other side is smooth, the outer side I can feel grooves and a lot of very hard baked on pad material. Can I use some sand paper to try to smooth it all out?
