Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also on Mercedes-Benz CLS550

Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Brakes replace 10K miles ago, now starting to squeak when backing up and starting stopping (from a low speed).
Warping of rotors...so the cars shudders as brakes are applied. Should not have this issues this early.
the car has a pronounced "shimmy" when applying the brakes. Worse at higher rates of speed.
Annyoing squeaking breaks are not worned.
My fromt Rogers are groove deep and squek. I will get brembo drilled Roter.
The braked squeal like a pig. I just also developed a strong gas smell emanating from the right side of the car.
