Would love to do this job for you but don't have the proper tools in my garage for it.

Depending where you live I know of a few shops that could handle it for you.

You're the Master Tech, why don't you tell us?

Hint: It has a canister that holds the walnut shell.

"Brake Pad, Rotors & Sensor Done for $390 (Chicagoland Area)"

I thought that price included parts, too.

No intention to give you a hard time here, but the header doesn't state it clearly. One has to read your entire post to find the "labor only" part. Misleading? Can be to some people. Is it an advertising tactic? Probably.

I would have replaced "Chigacoland Area" in the header and put "labor only". Just my 2 cents.

Is there anything specificlly labor intensive about brake job on F01 ? I had my E65 rotors + pads + sensors changed a while ago. I bought the parts and the BMW technician only charged me $80 for the labor on rear brake.
