Question Brake Fluid Change Shop Suggestions?

It is time to change the brake fluid...

Could you guys suggest any reputable shop for the brake fluid change around Central and North Seattle? The local shop quoted me $165-170 (with Motul RBF600 brake fluid - my choice), but I don't really trust their expertise with newer Bimmers...

Any idea how much does dealership charge for this service?

Anyway, appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!

I do it myself because its just changing the brake fluid. Any shop can do this.

Why do you want to use the RBF600? Are you planning on tracking the car or changing the fluid every 3 months?

Thanks everyone for suggestions. After some research I did it at Speedware Motorsports in Redmond.

The average price at indy shop is around $110. With Motul RBF600 it goes up to $160.
