Me: "I have a front Stoptech big brake kit. Rotors and pads are good."

SA: "Ok, I don't know how we can just disregard the recommended service."

Me: "They're no longer original BMW brakes. It's an aftermarket kit."

SA: "I see. Your brake service light will be coming on soon."

Me: "So disable it?"

SA: Shocked stare. "Ooh. I don't think we can do that."

Me: "Ok. I'll drive around with the light on then."
That's why I'm loving life. 105K all purpose street/track miles, 3 track days so far this year, and in fact just got back from road america a few days ago. Life is so much better well beyond warranty so you don't have to listen to all that nonsense from the stealership.
