I kno what you mean. I had my rotors resurfaced today...After the last GTG @ Autobahn a bunch of us took a drive.  Several rapid decelerations from >cough< higher speeds slightly warped the rotors on me.  :lol:

The stealership did it for me under warranty, no questions asked- which was refreshing.  

It's so nice to be rid of the damn vibration I was getting.

Ahh.. Much better now. The install was a breeze like yours Ian. I also put new slotted rotors and pads in the rear.

I bedded the new rotors and pads last night, They were smoking like mad after the 6-10th decellerations. I had to stop at a stop light after and the smoke was rising like they were smoldering down there.  It was great and they smelled amazing. I drove around after bedding them for about 25 minutes so they could get some fresh air and cool down.

The bite and feel really started to improve after 5-6 decellerations. By the 10th decellerations they were biting so hard it feels like i am now overbraking the suspension. It feels like i am back on stock non-sport suspension under hard braking.

But with only 1 night of driving with this setup, and they should be better today now that they are bedded and heat cycled i am very happy.

I'm glad to hear you like 'em as much as I like mine.  It takes me no time to get into ABS on the autocross course...I love it!!
