RE: Fishing Expedition/Harmonic Recall
It is possible that if the bolts were truly overtorqued then that can contribute to premature rotor replacement (typically warping or coning).
In some applications it is possible to mic the rotors without removing the wheel.
That said, dealers (of all makes) haven't earned their less-than-stellar reputations by being 100% honest, so it's possible you're being bamboozled.
Personally I'd ask him to please replace the HB and you'll have to defer on the brakes now because it's Christmas. Then either take care of it yourself or find a good independent.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
