Had both of my front shocks/struts replaced about a month ago at BMW dealership as well at 110,000 miles. Front springs were fine, but just had the rear ones replaced a month earlier. Must have broken a seal on the front because I had grease all over front left wheel after a trip on a very rough highway. Noticed poor ride/bounciness afterwards and found it was broken. Hefty bill of nearly $1,800 for fronts. Noticed the dealership charged full list on parts. I could have bought them from one of the board sponsors for about 30% less, but a little too intense for my patience level to replace.
