What does she mean replacing rotors? does she mean machining rotors and not replacing rotors? I used to drive an acura and serving brake means getting a machine to smooth out my rotor surface, hardly ever heard of replacing rotors unless they are old and bad.

My X5 is new, i am abit confused with this female service advisor.

Can some of you bimmer owners shed some light for my noob experience ?
That sounds pretty cheap, instead of inquiring on a forum, why dont you call her and ask her yourself.

BMW replaces rotors, not machines them.

They've come to my house every time, picked up my car, and left the 335i with me. And I'm pretty sure you can switch dealerships for service.

What he's referring to is probably valet service. pick up/drop off.
