question on parking break !

So today I accidently drove my TL 2005 with 89k km's on it for about two hours WITH the parking break pulled up about 3/5 of the way. The release parking break signal never came on. Was city driving, never really exceeding 60+kms and it was rush hour too. Smelled some burning while driving and didn't think it was me until I got home and went oh fuck.. just tryna figure out how much damage I could've done, any ideas?

warped rotors, burnt out brake pads pretty much it

might be some more stuff but those 2 are the main things

also some cars use a seperate braking system for the E-brake, not sure about 2005 TL's but you should take it to a shop

do you think they're worth replacing, if so how much ? if e-brake is a separate breaking system then maybe i don't need to worry as much since i don't use it as much as the regular brake..

Honestly i don't know much about cars, but anyways if I put the car in neutral it drifts in the direction of the hill its on and parking break only works when its FULLY pulled all the way, 1 click down and ill start moving.

If the car is absolutely NOT rusty you should have little to worry about. If the car is a little rusty, that is more concern. Has it ever seen salt and snow?
