Just purely from an interest point of view.

The rotor disk is mounted to the central spindle/hub via the pins on the circumference of the spindle (the part with the embossed ///M on it), thus 'floating' around the spindle rather than the rotor and spindle being a single piece as seen below
I've had two sets of discs and 4 sets of pads in 60,000 miles - including about 12 track days.M5saloon said:So much for not warping!!
I had a set replaced under warranty just last week, they were fitted in April 2004 and the car only did 6,000 miles since then, had serious judder under braking as warped! The local agents were very helpful though, didn't even charge for the fitting.
