Mein Auto: 535Xi before a 330Xi
Question Full brake job $900 from dealer with rotors??

Looking at doing it myself, but at a cost of about $600 for the parts, the time and hassle (its winter here, so not much fun doing this kind of work)

And its the "moms car with baby seat" so never tracked or autocrossed, and the only baby seat-able car in the house.

No brianer?? Or am I missing anything? (I'm a bit stumped, as I never thought having a brake job at a dealer would sound like the right move)

How much would you save?

What would good pads and rotors installed cost?

Mein Auto: 545i
Brake pads and sensors front and rear, rotors just for the front and a brake fluid flush cost me a little bit more than that at a good indy.

That seems like a fair price, as my E39's brakes are $828 all the way around, for just parts..... If your in the mood to change them its not that hard though.
