I might, tomorrow, if my mom lets me steal her camera and pull my wheels off. I believe QSilver7 may have some of the pics. The first attachment is the DSC connector in the car. The silver part is the hydro unit; the black part (also featured in the second image) is the module, which I believe to be the repair kit.

- #1 Hydro unit, ASC ===> $2,775 + $277 (~10% tax) = $3,052
That seems to be the hedgehog-like bit that the ASC control unit bolts on to; i.e. the milled aluminium part.
- #2 Repair kit, control unit ASC ===> $1,120 + $112 (~10% tax) = $1,232
Plastic bit that everyone sends in. The "module". As far as I can tell. Very expensive apparently; shouldn't be that much. If it comes to it, email Jared.
- 2x sensors front ===> $134 x 2 = $268 + $27 (~10% tax) = $295
- 2x sensors rear ===> $201 x 2 = = $402 + $40 (~10% tax) = $442
You saw them when you did the brakes. BMW will probably charge an hr labour. A child could do it once the wheel is off. It's technical like an oil change

You have DSC. Not ASC. Don't mix them up! The ASC module is much more expensive than the DSC afaik. There's several major differences as well. The dealer should've pointed this out if you called about an '02.
