Given these numbers (what does FRU stand for?), the $225 "Labor Hours" charged seems to fit Bimmrefest community expectations.

The only thing that seems missing is the "extensive diagnostic" report.

What should we expect to ask for by way of BMW diagnostic numerical output?

NOTE: I asked BMW NA Customer Relations today for assistance (as per General BMW thread but they only handle manufactured parts, not dealers or service).

By the way, where can I obtain these FRU numbers (are they in the KSD)?
