Thumbs Up CHEAP Genuine BMW OE Pads, Sensors and Rotors

I needed new pads/rotors/sensors for all four wheels and began a quest for the cheapest OE brakes online.

Here's what I found to be the cheapest option. Many vendors sell the brake service parts separately or in all-inclusive bundled kits (pads/sensor/rotors). After putting together prices from the various vendors for pads/rotors/sensors, this is what I've found. The packaged bundles are not always the cheapest option and may actually cost more than buying them separately. It seems most end up buying in piecemeal or just getting the kit which costs more. During my research, I stumbled across a little discussed package offered by BMW in certain markets called a "Value Line" service kit. The kit comes with a pair of pads and a sensor for the front or the rear and costs a lot less than buying them separately or as part of a bundled kit. By purchasing the Value Line kit and rotors separately, you will pay less than a bundled kit or by purchasing them separately.

VALUE LINE Brake Kits:
FRONT PADS/SENSOR 34112157573 - $74.37
REAR PADS/SENSOR 34212157576 - $62.13

ROTORS:
$76.07 FRONT ROTOR ($152.14)
$76.54 REAR ROTOR ($153.08)


TOTAL COST:
$226.51* (FRONT pads/rotor/sensor)
$215.21* (REAR pads/rotor/sensor)

*These prices are from www.BMWmercedesPARTS.com
