    Good shops in Sacramento? E46 brakes

    My brake pad light came on recently, so I need to get my brake pads changed.

    Can anybody recomment some good shops that work on BMW's? Or is this not really a critical issue and I can just go any brake shop.

    Priority would be:

    1. honesty
    2. quality
    3. pricing

    hopefully all three of course.

    Car: 1999 328i E46

    Thanks!

    I\'ve been to Euro-Am with the E34.

    Didn't have brakes done, but he's honest and does good work. He's in Carmichael. Peter is at 944-4491. A co-worker had 3 BMW's and took all his cars there for service. Guess that says something about his work.

    DIY, if its so important.

    You call your self a bimmer owner and you cant do your own brakes. Pathetic!

    Re: DIY, if its so important.

    $150 worth of parts (pads, rotors, a can of WD40 and a can of brake cleaner), and about 1 1/2 hour working in a driveway. Straight forward job you might consider taking on, if not for saving the money then for the feeling of accomplishment. If you are not mechanically inclined, probably best to pay someone to do it. But I would recommend giving it a shot; did mine two weeks ago. Just my $0.02.
