Took my 2008 BMW 328i into the mechanic because I began

Took my 2008 BMW 328i into the mechanic because I began getting the message: "ABS Braking/Driving - Brake and drive control systems malfunction. Reduced braking and driving stability. Avoid hard braking." The mechanic said that, mechanically, the car is fine; however, he could not attest to the effectiveness of the ABS system. The cost: $3,097.50, not including labor. Does this sound about right?JA: Have you checked the brake fluid? And have the brakes been squeaking?Customer: No, the brakes have not been squeaking. I did not think to check the brake fluid. Could that cause the system to activate that warning?JA: What is the model of your '08 BMW?Customer: 328iJA: Are you fixing your 328i yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: No, I am not. I have not tried.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: not that I can think of.

I own a 2003 BMW Z4 E85 USA left hand drive. Front Wheel

I own a 2003 BMW Z4 E85 USA left hand drive. Front Wheel speed sensors have been replaced but I still have yellow indicator lights on for DCS, Flat tire and BRAKES. ABS scan DTC codes are 5E30 Lateral Acceleration Sensor failure and 5E38 Yaw Rate sensor failure , however I believe the DSC Yaw Rate Speed Sensor(###) ###-####replaces these in one unit for E85? Question is where are the sensors located? Bimmer Links give varied locations--under drivers seat ,passenger seat or even console? Can you clarify as to correct part(s) and location to avoid ripping all the carpet up!. My Vin is 4USBT53413LU04224 if helpful.Thanks Dave
