Default need brake pad change shop recommendation tampa new port richey area..

So my m3 now finally need a brake pad change. this is the first brake change I am getting after driving it since 2012. lol... I really baby it so that's why the brake lasted that long.... so it finally making some screeching noise once a while braking.

Is there anything special about the brake change that needs to be done at some special places or could i just bring it to any decent place or cheap place ie just4brake? any recommendation? don't really want to go to stealers...

Also does anyone has an indy shop recommendation in the palm harbor, new port richey tampa area?

You "baby" the car so you don't have to change brake pads?

You wait for a screeching sound to tell you when to change pads?

You might try actually looking at your pads...you know....once every few years.

Why not diy? Super easy and you’ll probably save $400 or more. I don’t do everything myself either, but some things are easier than others, brakes are one of them.
