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.
Question is if you would be allowed to change only 1 rotor. Typically, you'd need to replace both, on either side of an axis, to make sure both perform the same... And when you get new rotors, you get new pads (for the same reason). That, at least for me, is the way to properly replace/upgrade brakes...

So a scorched rotor costs you around $8k... That's expensive...
