i talked to a bmw owner and he said to get something done that's not under warranty, you can pay $140 an hour for labor! that's like twice more than other companies. is this true? is it a lot higher for BMW's than other cars? granted i'd like to learn to fix everything by myself, like my dad can, that saves tons of money.
my mechanic has been doing business with where i work for many years he just gives me a random rate. last time he charged me 160 to change a flex disc, change tranny oil, change rotors and pads on front wheels i had already completed the rears but the front ones needed to be drilled off because they were too rusted...and he also did a lot of other things.
