My Ride: 2002 325XI
Replacement parts 325XI 2002

I went to the Dealership for the first time after purchasing my vehicle used about 7.5k miles ago. (I would have gone sooner but haven't gotten the chance as it is so far away from where I live).
I got a courtesy check and these are the problems that were listed,

Cylinder Head Cover Gaskets

Oil Filter Housing Gasket

Both Outer CV Boots (Cracked)

Brake Pads and Rotors on the front

Brake Fluid

Drive Belts

With the first three and Drive BeltsI'm just going to have the dealership do what they have to do to replace them.

With the Brake Fluid I was thinking about using either Motul Brake Fluid; the brake pads and rotors I was looking at Textar or Akebono pads and Stoptech Rotors.

I also noticed that the labor seems to be the most of the cost to have them replaced, I want to have them replaced by someone very trustworthy and preferably BMW Certified that isn't over the top expensive, anyone know of any trustworthy places that could be in Wisconsin? If not I'll let the dealership do their thing.

I'm very open to opinions, let me know different suggestions.
