Which BMW do you drive?

We hit a tire on the highway and it ripped our driver side fender liner apart. Found a replacement on Ebay for 1/3 the price the dealer wanted.

Also, there is a lot of shaking in the steering wheel when braking, so I need to replace the front rotors. Just wondering though, if this was a CPO, shouldn't the rotors be like new?
CPO covers the brakes. Similar to my friend's ES330 CPO, he complained about the shaking when braking, they replaced the pads and re-cut the rotors and was given a loaner.

You have a CPO, any problems, take it in for a check. You will learn how to enjoy a Lexus soon.

Welcome and good luck.
