The rear brakes have been grinding for about a week so I figured it was time to change them. As it turns out it does need rotors and pads but also I found out the front ball joints or something are very loose. He showed me them and they're right behind the brake pad. He said that they are the original ones which is quite amazing I heard. They found nothing else wrong but everything is going to cost 1k. We're getting a deal and a free oil change in there since its been 10k miles. Kind of nice since I was going to do it next week.

Oh, he commented that he noticed how good of condition the x is in for the mileage and that someone must really pamper it. I felt proud

Well, I noticed some changes: No more noises comming from the front like before and braking is much better. Im quite happy with the results. Im also glad I finally got an oil change after 10k miles. Man that filter was dirty. That wont happen again

Soldier, if you do the tranny fluid change yourself, get a shift kit if you haven't already.
