Lightbulb BMW E70 X5 brake pads

Evening X5 owners,

I recently had all four brake pads replaced on my BMW X5 (E70) by a BMW approved independent. The service included bleeding the brakes and refilling the car with BMW brake fluid. FYI, parts were purchased from a local BMW dealer by the mechanic.

Total: $730 including labour

OEM front brake pad set (front) -$220 approx
OEM front brake pad set (rear) -$270 approx

Sensors for the front were approximately $40 and the rears were $30 approx.

Have I been overcharged? Mind sharing some experiences...

you could have saved a couple of hundred $$ going with aftermarket pads, otherwise price looks ok.

Thanks for contributing to the thread mate.

It seems after speaking to a few others that I have been charged stealership prices unfortunately.

Out of curiosity what is the average you should be looking at paying from an Indy?

Mine is due in about 10k
