Post Newbie with a question on brake job for E320 - Dealer or Indie?

I am new to the forum. I have a 2005 Mercedes E320 which is showing a warning signal that my brakes needs replacing. The local MB certified mechanic says that my rear wheels' brake pad, rotor and sensor needs replacing plus the fluids too and asking for $640. My MB dealer in nearby town is quoting $680. A local mechanic says that he would fix it for much less if I buy him the parts which costs less than $200. Should I go with the independent mechanic to save money? I read some where that newer E320 have a very complicated SBC system that only certified mechanics or dealers can fix. Please advise
