How limited is it, how many track days have you gotten out of them?
I won't even track them I don't wanna pay 17k for new rotors and pads. I would pay for new steels, but 17k that's nuts. It's so much of risk knowing that ruining one will cost you 4k a rotor. Its not sensible for the amount of performance it offers. Is wish I could say" oh well who cares" but this isn't a supercar 4k for a rotor on an M3 feels dumb and unwarranted.
Why don't you just replace the rotor with a steel rotor and use the same caliper? There might not be a BMW option for this yet but I'm sure it's coming. Porsche guys have been doing this for years.
