What's the cost of changing the front brakes on a 325Ci?

I own a 2002 325Ci. I was wondering how much is the cost to change JUST the front brakes at a dealership and how much I can get it elsewhere.

Is it worth the money I save to go elsewhere to do it? after buying the brakes from the dealership?

Thanks.

Or, yet another option: purchase the brakes from an online supplier (such as Tirerack, Turner, Bavarian Auto, etc.) to save money over the dealership, then take it to a mechanic..

Dealerships in my area charge about $120/hr, mechanics abour $75/hr. Replacing one set of brake pads should take about a half-hour per axle. Replacing one set of rotors and one set of brake pads per axle should take perhaps an hour or an hour and a half.

DON'T forget the brake pad sensor wires and some anti-squeal compound.
