I bought a used 2006 325XI and now require brake service. I was quoted $524 for front & $480 for rears. This includes pads, rotors and cleaning sensors. Does this seem reasonable? Work is being performed by BMW certified mechanics.

Thanks.

Doesnt seem to bad, prices are all dependant on the quality of parts used, so you could go to BMW and get charged a bit nore but get genuine parts that would last as long as the previous parts.

I can change a disc/rotor and pads in approx 15 minutes, without any fancy car lift etc.

I needed to change my rotors which were original from new with 130,000 miles on so I paid a bit more at BMW, I only got the parts and fitted them myself, not that much more to be honest, If I remember each disc/rotor was about $10 more, but I now know I can go another 130,000 miles.

Maybe worth you buying the parts from BMW and getting someone else to fit them, they will last longer than any aftermarket disc and are under warranty for 12 months from BMW, in the long run you will save money....

Also new sensors should be fitted when changing brake pads..

Thanks. I was a little surprised since I usually only pay $200-300 for domestic car. I guess you have be prepared to pay when you own a BMW.
