New discs?

Just had my 05 WRX in for 20,000 service, and they're telling me it will need new front pads and discs before the next service.

Pads I can live with, but shouldn't discs last more than 20k miles? Yes it occasionally gets driven in a spirited fashion, but I'm generally not heavy on brakes and the most use of the motor is as my wife's daily driver. (She doesn't drive it like I do!!)

I suggested new discs should be covered under warranty, but they said it was fair wear and tear. I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Thanks.
