Indy shop recommendations in Seattle

Good morning, folks,

I've seen a lot of "specialty" shop recommendations, but what do you guys recommend for a battery change and, more importantly, a brake pad change? I'm looking to replace the OEM brakes (they were at 3mm about two months ago, so they need to be changed) with some nicer ceramic ones--I'm tired of having to wash my wheels every other week!

Additionally, I know there's a lot of stuff about the battery, but if there are any indy shops that will do the battery change (and subsequent recoding), that'd be great--the Seattle BMW dealer quoted me $512 (!!!!) for a battery change, and I'm still waiting to hear back from Bellevue BMW. I have coded my car, but in general, it doesn't seem like the coding portion of a battery change has quite been perfected, so I am wary of doing it myself.

I have a 2007 BMW 328xi (e90).

Thanks for any recommendations!
