Had a friend who worked at MB for many years. Common practice to replace rotors with pads. They never cut them, explanation was rotors were soft and made to wear hence the replacement.

As far as pads I would only recommend OEM. You paid a lot of $$$ for this vehicle and I wouldn’t compromise it with aftermarket parts.
