Rotors were fine, clean with plenty of metal still on them. The dealer wanted $800. that is insane. How can I get the warning light to reset.

    SEE A MECH WITH SCAN TOOL OR GO TO DEALER FOR RESET. SIDE NOTE ROTORS AND PADS SHOULD BE CHANGED AT THE SAME TIME ON GERMAN CARS.

    If the rotors are good why would I change them. that seems to be a waste of money. Given the added expense why would I do that?
