My rotors are very badly “lipped” around the edges.
Has anyone had this happened and replaced the pads and discs or did you have to replace the callipers by this point too?

They are squealing very bad at this point.

43,000. Think you are right. I’m thinking pads and rotors just worried the callipers of the Brembo will need to be replaced.

Awesome. Did you use EBC or Zimmerman?

Any trouble with squealing?

Cheers

They also have good customer service. If you give them the VIN# of your car, they'll check if the parts you order fit your car. If not, they can make changes for you. All these are done through email.

"Lipped around the edges" is the wear difference between the rotor face vs. the very edge portion of the disc the pads don't touch. Very normal. In theory and assuming adequate thickness, the rotors can be machined (turned) which resurfaces and smooths the face of the disc removing the lip in the process. Problem is finding a shop capable and willing to do it. Dealers won't.

Very helpful, they are likely replacing the rotors and pads tomorrow.

Replaced the pads and rotors on the front and serviced the rear.

Will that lead to any issues or is that standard?

Fronts do the bulk of the braking (thus the larger rotors in front) and it's not unusual for them to wear out first. It's necessary to do brakes in pairs, front or rear, but usually not necessary to do all four every brake job.

If you can find an independent shop, they can easily turn "mill" the rotors to get a second life out of them.
Dealers won't do it as they are here to sell parts. Many independents no longer have the machine or senior staff to do it. Finding a local "brake shop" requires some research. Old school tire shops sometimes still have the tool.

The lips on the discs indicate that your discs are worn, more then likely past the point of just machining them flat again. You're going to have to bite the bullet and replace the discs. The model and year of your particular rover typically goes through a set of brakes and tires around every 30k miles give or take a bit depending on driving style. And I always recommend replacement of the discs with a brake job on these vehicles.
