If i stay with stock pad and they get worn out , what will the service depatment say (sonce it only has 5k miles)? Has anyone done this?
A guy that went to VIR with me had one rotor with some warpage/brake deposit that vibrated. He took it into dealer and they replaced both front rotors/pads. The car had ~2,500 miles on it.
Mine lasted thru the weekend, and aren't bad enough to change yet. If I do another track event this fall they'll be toast.
With my e46 330i, I didn't last a weekend w/o the pads melting to the rotors and becoming a grinding mess.
