I have a 2004 530i that had the ccv freeze up and on -40 degree day and pushed the oil out through my exhaust. I had the car towed to Jason imports and they fixed it at I guess would be a ok price. I think it was 600-800, I cant remember. If I remember correctly he replaced the ccv and the hoses and put a ccv winter kit on(which I was able to visibly see the new insulated hoses). My major issue was the customer service of the mechanic working, he just seemed very rude and had a constant attitude. if I could give 3.5 stars I would. They got my car fixed in a timely manner but customer service on the mechanic's part sucked. I would have rated higher with 4 or 5 stars if the customer service was better.

Tips & Advices
Ceramic brake pads are made from dense, durable ceramic. They are favored for their relative silence while driving compared to metal or organic brake pads. They also have little wear and tear on the overall brake system and are very reliable. However, they are more expensive than metal or organic brake pads. Additionally, their performance deteriorates in extreme driving conditions.
Brake rotors typically last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.
Brake shoes are used in drum brakes--rather than disc brakes--which is the original braking system designed for vehicles. Just as brake pads are the friction component of disc brakes, brake shoes are the friction component of drum brakes. When the brakes are applied, a wheel cylinder pushes the brake shoe against the brake drums, which spin while the vehicle is in motion, and causes the vehicle to stop.
A squeaking or squealing sound when applying newly replaced brakes is normal. It comes from the rotor vibrating against the new brake pads. It should quiet down after about 250 miles, and should be more or less silent by 750 miles, when the brake system has had some time to synchronize itself.
This depends on the car, the brake system, and the car owner's driving habits. Typically, a car's brakes should be replaced after about 50,000 miles, but some car's brakes may last anywhere from 25,000 to 70,000 miles. Car owners shouldn't wait for a magic number to replace their brakes. They should check them regularly, and pay close attention if they hear any weird noises or if the car feels shaky while braking. Brakes are a critical safety component of a car, so it's important to stay on top of brake maintenance.
