Best estimate on US price for parts:

Guys,
Im working with a new service shop for my Alpina 2013 -b7. Their labor rate is high but they have a good rep in town.
I'm looking to get an idea on price fair price for sensors/ front brakes Pad set and L/R discs.

Plus they are suggesting replacing the lower control arm bushings [ due to leakage]

I'm wondering how different the parts are on the Alpina versus stock or can I just use items like Bosch etc as a lower cost repalcement....or am I buying more trouble than its worth?
They want 2 hours of work on the brakes and 3 for bushings. + an alignment.

34 35 6 791 958
783 554
789 543
789 544
bushings: 31 12 6 777 653

1240 for parts and 575 for labor plus a 179 alignment.

I would not replace the control arm bushings, change the complete control arm. This is probably a 1 hour job for someone that knows the job. Lemforder is the OEM part, at around 130.00 each. Tweak the info to make sure they are correct for your car at the top of the page.
