But it's all cack anyway because you can just get in your new 3 series and drive it The only thing I'd take care of it letting the discs go through a few heat cycles before taking the car on a track or doing any really spirited driving otherwise you'll just warp them. But then if you're doing that you should be using uprated brakes anyway

Get in it, love it, drive it.

Don't worry about it
