I didn't perform an in-depth analysis...so I apologize if I may have offended anyone with my choice of verbiage.
Now, before you roast my chestnuts...hey, it's November, I can have some holiday cheer if I wanna'...by your tally, 3 of 13 "guys having issues" equals 23 PERCENT
of those forum members.
Personally, if 23% of riders "have issues" with foam grip covers, it's not going sway my purchasing decision. If 23% report significant dissatisfaction with a saddlebag liner, I may pay attention, but if I get a good deal on a set, or if I like how they look, I may ignore that and buy anyway.
But, hey man...we're talking about BRAKES
here!!! You know, the things that slow or halt forward momentum and can prevent you from becoming a hood ornament on that soccer mom's minivan?
Brakes, fuel lines, tires, and lighting (particularly turn signals and brake lights) are things I guess I am perhaps over-squeamish about?
Who knows...some may call me a pussy for it, but for any of those four, if one of my Forum friends like you reports an issue with an aftermarket product, I pay a lot of attention. More than one? It scares me off.
Let me try again: "as I read, I came across a lot of notably positive comments about the EBC pads and no negative ones...but was surprised to find a few negative comments about rotors by the same company."
(I still wanna' know how many pads come if you pay a company $23, if people who have put miles on the PADS are happy with 'em, and if anyone knows what the heck the service bulletin is/was, and if anyone got help from BMW because of it)

I haven't looked back to see if it was added to or not, but that quickie survey I did showed 13 EBC rotor installs and 3 guys had issues. Rest of 'em said 'good'.
You got some better info? Be worth seeing.
Found the thread!
And the only other comments added about the EBC rotor are 'good' ones.
