They've done my 328 since I bought it - no dramas
Forgot to say i got the job done last month, very pleased with the work, would use them again and recommend them, bill came to £490 (with me supplying the parts), that was including two new brake back plates though (£41 + VAT each from BMW), roughly 7 hours labour.
Recon the car now needs new rear shockers (passed the MOT ok but handling is wierd), when replacing the rear shocks it'd be crazy not to replace the springs and top mounts too, priced these bits, came to £350
, will be able to do this job myself but the whole of the rear interior has to come out to get to the top shocker mounts and the arch liners need to come out so at least a days work
I'm discovering an old 7 series beemer is a two grand car with 50 grand car running costs and repair bills
