You should pull the rotors and measure them with a mic to be sure they're still within spec, then take them to an automotive machine shop and have them turned and balanced so you get nice even, vibration-free, bedding in with the new pads. I bet the Dealer includes this service in their price. To do right, I'd say more like $200 and about 3 hrs. time. Many machine shops can turn them while you wait, especially if you call ahead. Hope this helps...

Jim, but this is only if you have non-drilled rotors right? What does the dealership do on the "S" model with the drilled rotors to make sure the pads bed in nicely?
