Service Costs in Canada and Brake Rotors

3754 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  virtualrain
I found this price list on the BMW Canada site. Can anyone comment on the truth to this?

Also, what is up with the price of pads and rotors? Is that the cost of machining rotors or replacing rotors? It seems so expensive that it must be replacing rotors (machining rotors usually costs about $20 each). Why would you need to replace your rotors? Every vehicle I've owned has only ever required machined rotors (and I typically drive vehicles for 100-150K Km).

Oh, and another thing. There is a price for a timing belt replacement... I assume that is only for 4 cyl. models?

Thanks for your thoughts.

In canada rotors are not covered under warranty (2000 323Ci). Had my front pads and rotors replaced at only 32000KM.
32,000 KM for rotors is rediculous. Brake pads should last longer than that under normal use. Rotors should last at least a few brake jobs unless they get warped (because of extreme conditions or poor design). If this is indeed the case, then shame on BMW for implementing a rotor so rediculously short lived!
