I have 1998 528i and I recently noticed the Brake Shoe light show up. Took it to a local Midas who gave me an estimate of over $900 so I called up BMW Parts Bin (thepartsbin.com) who offered me new brake parts (stock) for less than half the price. In fact, the person I talk to even mentioned that it is quite easy to change the brakes on your own. Any one has any experience with this? can some one guide me to whether this should be done on my own or would it be better to go to a mechanic?
