depending on where you are in NOVA, try J&F Motors in Arlington.

They are in south Arlington, on 4 Mile Run Drive I think.

Very knowledgeable and experienced with BMWs.

If you're out by the Reston/Dulles area, another alternative is RRT.

Or perhaps you could try Curry's Auto Service.

are you supplying the brakes pads and other parts yourself? If you want to go OEM, i suggest you buy the materials online and take them to install it.

I will be replacing my rear brake pads and rotors... bought the rotors for 240 used with less than 1k miles and pads for 110 new... and dealer wants $750+ i dont know i think DIY is your best policy since your asking a place for a good deal...
