: Light came on yesterday, 'Brake Lining' and my BMW guys tell me that the pads are 134.00 front and 143.00 back, labor included.{Independent BMW Specialist} BUT, if rotors need to be replaced, 300.00 something for front and about the same for back... Rotors were replaced in April of 98.
: IS this normal? And, an I getting hosed on prices?
: Aftermarket parts?
: Any help would be greatly appreciated...

The job isn't that tough to do yourself. Less than 1.5 hours for the front for a beginer. Look at my 535i website under Tech to get instructions and more info. Good luck.
