Brakes problem
2006 BMW Z4 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 51000 miles

my brake service light just came on. The dealer says I need to spend over $1000 to replace all 4 brake pads and rotors. They say they cannot replace pads alone; they only replace pads with rotors. Sounds fishy to me. I have no reason to believe there is anything wrong with the rotors. Can I replace the pads only?

Sure you can if the rotors are not beyond tolerance. The dealer isn't the only one who can do brakes, call around. Thousand bucks? WOW. That's high mate, 800-900 is more like it if the rotors are replaced.
