The indy shop is ASE and BMW Certified, according to their website:


They quoted me $123 for the filters, but I didn't ask about the fluids. $520 for the control arm bushing.

Thanks for the advice!
That is an insane price for the control arm bushings. They cost $100 for upgraded Meyle HD parts. I can do the install myself in about an hour. Yours definitely need replacing by this mileage though. Also you probably need new rear trailing arm bushings (RTABs) with limiters ($80). I would suggest a new steering flex coupler as well ($30)
