I have a light on my dashboard lit up and it's to the right of the ABS light. It looks very similar to the ABS light but there no letters inside the circle. I don't know wha it means. The manual didn't even speciffy it. The closest thing to it they specifified with the ABS. Any Idea's?

Might be the Brake pad wear sensor, usually means you need new pads, How long since you changed them? When you get new pads you have to replace the sensor.

300 is retarded.
Hawk HPS pads for an all around set are around $140. It's not that hard to do it yourself, you don't even really need many tools.
Hell, buy some pads yourself, go to just about any decent shop and they can put them on and bed them in for you.
You do need a new brake pad sensor for the light to shut-the-f*ck-up


Does the light look like a circle, with 3 rounded square things on either side? That's the brake pad light

If you replace the pads before the wear sensors come on then you don't need to replace them.

Or you can just be like me and zip tie the little bastards up out of the way. I got pissed after I broke 2 trying to put them in so I just gave up.

At the dealership, or at least the BMW of Manhattan dealership. But lately I got some work done concerning my collision with the city bus at the BMW dealership in Brooklyn and I swore when I looked over their invoice some of the stuff were cheaper that what I'd seen on an earlier estimate at BMW of Manhattan.

For eg. A tiny (2 inch deep and 3-4 inch long) fender dent repair was like $1000+ in BMW of Manhattan's estimate. But the dealership in Brooklyn replaced and repainted an entire fender, sideskirt, door exterior panel and mirror for all under $1200 used. I'm not sure if my insurance had some influence over their pricing but I thought that was damn cheap compared to other stuff I did for my car at the dealership in Manhattan.

But can I conclude from this observation that dealerships costs vary from place to place? used
