brake rotor replacement '99 320E

Am just replacing front brake rotors at 38,000 miles. I am driving mostly around town, some highway driving but this seems a bit excessive. Anyone have epxerience with this? My last car 1985 300CTD got about 60k betw rotors and this was a much heavier car.

Rotor problem

My E320 CDi Wagon has done 38k of fairly heavy driving.

My rotors are still as smooth as when they came from the factory.

Has your dealer been using the correct pads ??
This is not as silly as it sounds as a subsitute would yeild a greater profit and is not unknown.

One other point. Have you run them on much after the "Change Pads" light came on.
Once you get groves in the rotors it goes from bad to worst very quickly.
