My BMW dealer charges $69.95 for a brake fluid flush which I don't consider a bad deal to get done every two years. Now, pricing of brake jobs and miscellaneous E34 weirdishness is entirely another story and that's why I would rather do THEM myself!!

Don't even ask me about my reaction to the freakin outrageous price ($500) the Audi dealer wanted to replace the front rotors and pads on my wifes 96 A4q 2.8 and ONLY the pads on the rear for a mere $200.

I did them both myself for:
Fronts - $235 with upgraded ATE PowerDiscs, new
hardware & FABULOUS EBC GreenStuff pads!
Rears - $155 with new ATE rotors, hardware and
once again, the EBC Greenstuffs.
