Brake service on 2013 BMW 335i

I live in Sunnyvale, CA and I'm looking to get my brakes serviced. Does anyone know (approximately) how much a brake service is supposed to cost and what is done? I've heard from one company that it costs $1000 and will require sensors to be changed out. Thanks in advance!

Get parts online and if you are not DIY inclined, take it to ANY shop.
If you are DIY inclined, it is piece of cake.
Get ATE, Textar, Brembo or Zimmerman rotors. And get ATE or Textar pads. Sensors are also cheap. Probably numerous YouTube videos how to do it.

Thanks edycol - I'm in a time crunch so I won't be able to do it myself. Is there a site you recommend for me to buy the parts at? Thanks for your reply!

BTW, if I was to have a shop do this, how much should it cost (approximately)?

I have m performance brake and should be similar to yours. My car dealer quoted me ~$2500. One local shop quoted me ~$1200.

I did it myself (just changing pads) and reused everything else for less than $100 of pads.

You sure you need rotors? Did you ever change them?

To OP, local trusted indies said $200 labor per axle plus parts.

Does your car need both rear and front?

Indies said front usually need rotors + pads + sensor, while rear may be ok pads + sensor.

Last summer online sales from BMW dealers sold rear pads for $25, and sensor for $10, so my plan is to just brake those to indies and pay $200 (for less than $250 total).

Indies said they would measure rotor thickness, and if needed, a pair of aftermarket zimmerman coated rotors is around extra $180.
