: Well I need new rotors and pads. Curious if anyone has tried the ATE gas slotted rotors. Also does anyone know how to reset the dash message once you get the "brake lining" message? I thought I had read that you need to replace a sensor once you get this message.
I heard from my service manager the other day that you must change the sensor once it displays the brake lining message. Not sure why, maybe it's considered disposable.
I have A.R.T. gas slotted rotors on my Suburban. They are supposed to run cooler and resist fading. I've always kept stock (German) rotors on my BMW. They seem to last quite a while. I've only warped one bad enough to replace it. I do turn them once before I replace them though.
A.R.T. can be contacted through http://www.appliedrotortechnology.com I'm not sure if they do BMW rotors, but they sure look good.
