Front and Rear Pads Prices

Can I go for OEM parts with a non BMW dealer for brakes and get some quotes or will this cause an issue with aftermarket warranty terms and conditions if anything goes wrong.

Rears are something like 280 fitted fronts about the same....

In the US, this isn't an issue due to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. As long as your independent shop is familiar with BMW's and does a proper installation there shouldn't be an issue! Make sure your car doesn't need rotors as well, and you should be good to go with OE pads from various vendors.

Agree same in UK so long as you can evidence use of original parts. However I usually play a few local dealers off against each other and get them to reduce their prices on getting them fitted.

Luckily a mate of mine just started as a salesman at Sytner so I now get staff discount on all work and parts
