RE: Brakes

I am not a Quattro brake expert, but disks every 30K miles sounds a
little much. Are you using factory pads ? If you drive very hard, with
lots of brake lock up - you could heat the rotors so much as to warp them -
which would merit replacement. If you just do it a little, the rotors
will get 'glazed' a very shiny, hard, bluish surface, but that can usually
be cut off. Hard to tell without seeing the 'run-out' of the rotors on
a dial indicator. (I imagine you should have been given a reason for
replacement ?).
