Fuck yeah. :headbang:

Called my BMW service place and they'll install my new brakes and rotors for $397.60. The guy had to make a special exception because he said they usually don't install customer-provided parts (durr that's how they make money), but since I'm awesome they'll do it...and I get a free loaner car again, which is an absolute necessity.

They initially quoted me about $1100 (parts & labor) to install the shitty, dusty-ass OEM brake pads and rotors...LOL! So, I paid 423.38 on Tirerack for the parts and 397.60 for labor = $820.98. RAPE! And I'm getting the best ceramics and rotors.

Wewt! Akebono ceramic pads and Brembo rotors installed. Also got new brake sensors installed.

Bumble, what's the gold shit they put all over the brake pads?

All I need now is to have Mike put my summer tires on and I'll be all set for a while... :thumbsup:
