Watch the dealer that you use some BMW dealers are not honest and will try to sell you all kinds of repairs you do not need. My dealer last time I was in told me my bushings were showing signs of cracking and it would cost me $900 to replace them. He also told me I needed new rear breaks and new tires. I told him he was full of crap my tires were near new so he went out and looked and said they were ok. I went to my favorite BMW dealer in Denver almost a year later and he told me I did not have a problem with the bushings the tires still had 5/32 tread depth. Tire wear was normal. I had them replace the rear brakes.
