Brake pads change
Just coming up for a service and the computer shows rear brake pads up for change soon. If I believe the computer ...
Local BMW dealership (where I get a free service :-) will charge me £220 to change the rear pads. I know I can get the pads from their spares department for approx £80. That leaves £140 for labour. I know they charge a lot, but that seems extreme.
I called my local garage, who quoted approx £40-£50 for the labour costs.
The question is, why would I get BMW to do this, when I can shave nearly £100 off that labour cost? Do BMW do anything special along with changing the pads? I can't believe it's that hard, I did (in my earlier years) change pads on my trusty Orion, but I can't be arsed these days to mess about.
