My brake linings sensor came on, and I had BMW of Bellevue take a look at it and they quoted me $1143 @#!%ing dollars for the job. This is for the pads, rotors and center(?). I don't know what they are smoking but I just had my wifes brakes done at Sears for $290.

Maybe somebody could tell me what justifies the cost of $1143?

My son is currently driving my old 83 528e ans was quoted a price of $1300+ - by a dealership to replace both front struts. I had him take it to the aftermarket gaage I work with and the same job was around $600.00 The owner of the garage and I have been friends for 15 years and he replyed the cost was because it was a dealership and they could charge that much.
