Does using ASC/ABS shorten rotor life? (archive)

Posted by Armand on December 11, 2000 at 18:59:34:

Would the pulsating action of the ASC and ABS systems, particularly from frequent use during the winter, lead to shortened rotor life?

Previous to my 95 540, I owned a Eagle Vision with Traction Control and ABS. After one winter of heavy use (didn't think anything to use the traction control or ABS), my rotors were warped. Coincidence?

This intuitively makes sense although I'm not an expert.
