X5-2005 Repair costs
Reading the forums and looking at some of the DIY's I think I'm getting a rip off quote from an Indy in my area..

here is what I got:

Total to complete alternator stand gasket, valve cover gaskets along with upper timing cover gaskets and brake vacuum pump all together would save approximately $307.65 in labor overlap. $3155.26 would be the repair total and would require a 2 full days for completion.
Let me know if you have any questions or wish to schedule an appointment.

Is this out of this world or am I missing something? The brake vaccum pump was 700 bucks which is about the only thing that was somewhat reasonable.

Get the retail price for the parts at (replace the XXXXXXX with the last 7 of your VIN). No idea on the time but if he's quoting you 16 hrs labor for less than $100/hr then he's cheaper than BMW.
