I search forum but I cannot find anything about it.

Rear brake pads. Was quoted by BMW 475+ taxes for the rear. He told me its just the pads. Tech never mentioned I needed rotors I am wondering why it is so much?

I am thinking of just ordering the pads myself and having my uncle do the job at his shop. I am looking online for parts and it doesn't come close to that price (Obviously the labour is factored in to that price above)

Having said that, any thoughts? Is there something really special about getting it done at BMW? Some special configuration or is a straight up change like every car? Any recommendations on shops or places to get parts?

Appreciate the help.
