My guess on price on a 330i would be $18,000 to $21,000 depending on region, options, condition and if it is CPO. Go to Edmunds.com and look at their used car prices program to get an idea.

I did mine this summer. Like others said, do it your self. A few screws and the filter pops out, 10 minute job. Why pay the dealer a bunch of money when you can do it.
