You are going to have to call around fit that. I would take it to an Indy over a dealer. Try regional forum on here for recommended shops. Also keep in mind they may have to replace rotors too. So they may low ball on the front brake pad quote and nail you on the rotor quote. Therefore, ask for a quote on both.
If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
