Do we not have sensors on the pads? I would think that the brake repl light would have come on.

Why not just get new rotors? I mean, brakes are pretty important and while I understand just because we drive M3s doesnt mean we have assloads of funny money, but why not just get new a front setup? It cant be THAT expensive...
The other side had a half millimeter more. It all happened in one 20 min session on the track . Light came on 5 minutes before the left pad overheated and turned into a pile of dust. I had adequate pad thickness before that session. I am just too hard on the brakes

Despite the rotor looking like crap initially, it is actually not that bad, I put in my slightly used stock pads and it's all good. The car stops fine for the street.

I am planning on getting a BBK, that's the reason for not spending money on new rotors.
