well the pads only are around 150 plus labor, but are you sure they are not replacing the rotors too? I hear thats standard practice for BMW

Might want to have them put it all in writing as to what they are doing

but then you do live in NY so you probably pay 30 percent more in taxes too.

If it includes the rotors the that's typical for dealer prices.

That's without rotors, I'm positive. I was in the dealership in person not on the phone. They told me pad were almost 500? That's ridiculous!! I called another garage and they 200 for everything. But what should I do about the dealership? Thank you all again I do appreciate it!

call another dealer and get an estimate over the phone, its a standard repair, and tell your dealer what they quoted and that they are frikin out of their mind, sounds like your dealer thinks you are an idiot or got tons of money
