E46 330i Brake Job

Hi Guys,

The brakes on the car i bought recently is pretty bad (car was stored for a long time) -its ok at low speeds but at high speeds it gets really loud, i plan to do a complete brake job - replacement of rotors, pads, sensors etc. Since I have never done brakes before i plan to take it to a shop this weekend.

My question is how much should i be expected to pay for a complete brake job with OEM parts? How much is too much?

What size rotors should i be getting?

Is it possible to re-surface (not sure if this is the right word) the rotors and just replace the pads?

Any recommendations on some good shops in the GTA area?

Sorry for all the noob questions, and sorry if this is like a repetition question.
