My 2007 328i had to get a head gasket replaced, my mech said its a normal wear and tear replacement at 50k miles. Maybe new air cabin filter too.

Smoke was coming from the engine bay. So I took it in.

It's not. That mechanic must have been on shrooms.

It was actually a valve cover gasket. Those are different right? Sorry I don't know much about cars.

Big difference. The gasket is a very simple job, and yes, it does leak on E90's. Common thing to replace, but no big deal at all. The HEAD Gasket is a pretty big job, and very costly.

My brakes were also just replaced at 50k miles when I picked her up at the dealership.

probably a couple of thousand dollars, I would guess, usually they dont replace things for free without you complaining about it several times, in my opinion, if they didnt call me before they did the work I wouldnt pay them a penny, their was a reason they replace it for free and didnt call and tell you
