quick question.. i have a yellow light with a 3 circles around either side of it. I think it's the break light.. Do you guys think it's worth while giong to the dealership and paying like 500 to a grand to get the breaks fixed or am i better off having a shop that will charge half do it?
I also have my 55000 KM service coming up in like 2 weeks.. does anyone know if that requires anything special or should i just take that to a shop as well? I think they just do basic fluid changes..

When your E-brake comes on, you are low on brake fluid - top it off !
Regarding changing brake pads, you are in Vancouver, Brian Jessel BMW has special right now on brake jobs -$ 173.50 parts (new pads+ sensor) and labour, wchich is like $ 145 US bucks , so I do not know it is worth to go to other places for this money and you get from them 2 year warranty on any job they perform !
BTW whole brake jobs ( new rotors, pads and labour) would cost you at Jessel $393.50.
oh really.. my buddy just bought a 5 series from there and they sold him on this warranty saying that the brake job costs 500 for front and 5 for the back.. and that bmw brakes go every 30 k... Maybe tghat's just the 5 series..
