I would definitely suggest doing it yourself. I always replace both sides at the same time. The previous owner of my car had the bearings repacked at the place they bought the tires. I drove the car for a long time before I had a passenger tell me that the floor was vibrating at certain times. I had started to notice a strange noise and vibration. When I took a look at the wheel bearings, to my horror the retaining nut that holds the wheel on the car, was on backwards with the obvious rough(and it is rough) side towards the washer. The nut had completely unscrewed and was being held on by the grace of the grease cover. I could have had a major accident. I would never trust a shop unless it was familiar with German cars with my wheel bearings. It is worth doing yourself. Get some disposable rubber gloves from Walgreen's.
