No experience with the slotted rotors. But the message display will reset once you change the pads and install a new sensor with the pad. On the E32's there is one on the front right and one on the rear left. They are relatively inexpensive ($5 ea). Before you go whole hog for the rotors and pads, though, visually inspect the pads, rotors and sensors. I had a sensor wire devolope some slack and it rubbed the wheel, wore through and alarmed. The pads had another 15-20k miles in them!!

Like Jake, I wear two sets of pads and get one rotor turn before I get new rotors.

: 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.
