The brake pads from the dealership are exactly the Pagids (same box and all) as those from Steve D'G. Only they cost double.
About rotors I don't know, but I thought they were Balo, not Ate. I looked at my rotors and there's no BMW logo on them.
By the time you pay shipping, brake fluid, two trips to Sears for tools and trip to the Dealer for a broken bolt... it will be ABOUT $400
Oh.. My Bentley didn't mention anything about breaking bolts.. :-)
I do believe in the Parts Dept at the dealership, but only for specifics, such as BMW oil, coolant, oil filter housing cap :-) and other difficult to find parts (for which you don't pay shipping :-)).
Plus - you can't see BMW t-shirts draped all over the place at Sears..
