Anyone had a workshop complete rod bearings?

Hi, I am from Brisbane and have my 08 LCI m5 for 18 months. I bought the car stock in Melbourne and have done all the mods after reading hundreds of threads to make they were the best choices possible. Now I am a big believer in preventative maintenance and have changed many components on my car to avoid any issues. One thing I would love to do next is change out my big end bearings as we all know they can give issues. Question is, does anyone know of a owner in Australia getting this done and what workshop did it? BMW will do it but it is around 7k plus parts which I would get from bimmerzone in America. Anyone recommend any workshop?
