COMMENT by tycoon , September 23, 2011
thanks Roy it must be negotiable because the dealer came down a little on the on the price. From 2150 to 1750. Shouldn't the brake fluid/labor be included in the brake work already?
COMMENT by mastertech6371 , September 23, 2011
no, that is a separate operation. fluid exchange involves the master cylinder, not brake pad/rotor replacement. Roy

The coolant typically is about $200, Transmission $275, Power Steering flush $170, Brake Flush $140, and the brakes are about right.

Rear brakes, pads,rotors, and sensor / $605.00. This is with factory Zimmerman rotors and factory Jurid pads. Parts & Labor Coolant flush using 6 quarts of BMW coolant / $170.00 Parts & Labor Brake fluid flush / $120.00 Parts & Labor BG Power steering service / $170.00 Parts & Labor We would not had recommended a carbon depletion at 31k unless there was an issue with how the engine was performing and our diagnosis would have lead to that recommendation. We would had recommended adding a can of BG 44k at that mileage. If used regularly, every 7500 miles, a carbon depletion may never be needed. This is true only in cars with low mileage and cars getting regular oil changes at 5k or sooner. No 10k oil changes, that will lead to a diagnosis of a carbon depletion service sooner than it is needed. If a carbon depletion is needed it cost $250.00 Transmission is "LIFETIME FLUID", but it should be checked to make sure it is performing like it is supposed to be.

This seems more reasonable. Thanks. So what about the inspection charge? $140.
