On the day of replacement (at 25k miles) I was taken aback when I was told both the front discs required replacement at a total cost of 360. I wish I had sought a second opinion but at the time I put it down to the car being thrashed as a demo.

If you do decide to replace your CM SD with the 2nd generation CM, consider the ALL4, running costs are very minimal between 2WD and 4WD.
I hadn't thought that the discs might need doing, I really hope that they don't say that. Mine was a demo or fleet car as well so I really hope that they don't need it. We will soon see. Thanks for the warning/advice.
