brakes. not breaks.

Did you look up the cost of parts?

I seem to recall parts around $350.

Labor is 1 hr to 4 hrs, depending on how much they want to make. I **think** the 'book time' is 2 hours or 2.6 hrs to do brake and rotors. But that is a bit of a guess.

And if you go to an indy you will almost certainly get aftermarket parts. Which is fine. I usually use OE pads, and any rotor (metal is metal for DDs). But many idys will misrepresent this.... They can make as much on the parts mark up as they make on labor.

i have no idea.

By and large I've found ECS to sell standard aftermarket stuff, at a 20% mark up. While their excuse is "we carefully select only the best vendors to deliver proven solutions", you can usually do better. JMO

Personally I'll buy any rotor (like centric or zimmerman) and BMW OE pads. Worked fine, its a SUV, no complaints from the wife...
