Let me know what you think!! Did the dealer rip us off or treat us OK.

Honestly, the work to do your brakes yourself isn't much of a task at all and so much cheaper than having a shop do it! Also, chances are they gave you the OEM brakes. And because it's a BMW, they say you need to replace the rotors as well when you do pads. I got that a lot! For that price, you could have drilled AND slotted rotors, Stoptech (Street Performance) pads and still have about $700-800 saved in your pocket which could be a brand new set of tires...
