I am getting mine done at Tischer next week. $306 for the glass and about $185 for labor. Through Safelite, they quoted me $333 for non-OEM glass. Good luck.

For DYI'ers, the oil (7 quarts) should cost about $45 and filter is $11. The BMW oil should be a little cheaper. I always get the Castrol Syntec 0W-30. So, they are charging you $64-94 for labor. ...
