I purchased a 2005 m5 e60 from dick lovett bmw in bristol, england, at end of jan 2008. Unfortunately, didn't check the front disks properly, they are at the mininum. Dan at lovetts said that when they did there pre-sale checks the disks were 1-2mm above minimum. They have offered 200 pounds toward replacement, using a specialist I've used for years the coat with oe parts will be just under 700 pounds. Please advise, many thanks.

No, England don't get the 4-yr maintenance plan. Also, they almost pay in pounds that we pay in defalting dollars.

Not entirely sure about your costs there, but www.realoem.com has the rotors for about $400USD each. Pads are another $270 or so (not sure if that is for both sides or just one side).

I just had my rear brake pads replaced for the first time. On my work order, it says rotors were 23.7mm, and spec is 22.4mm. I'm guessing 22.4mm is minimum for the disc rotors, unless that is the standard and mine are thicker for whatever reason. Pads supposedly have about 50% more than a standard BMW pad, which means 16-18mm and typically replaced at 2-3mm.
