So, the explicit answer to my pointed Q is, No!  Work to be done before next
meaningful post!?

I post because you asked.
Car new to me two winters ago. @ 132 K
Roughly 20K under my ownership. 3 track events.  UFO's warp free, but just
starting a vibration under light braking, hence the extra scrutiny.  Front
pads looked at tonight 1/3 remaining even left and right (per rotor). Front
Boots appear intact.
Rears (pads) appear waffer thin.  Rear boots have splits. In process of R&R.

Parts on order from www.germanautoparts.com NY - customer.
HTH - Scott by BOSTON

When parked, I can push the car by hand, but not parked when hot.  Photos.

Maybe a little history re: your problem is in order.  Have you ever
overhauled the total brake hydraulic system,  All calipers, MC and since
then flushed fluid biennially (great word!)?
