The cost including the programming is between $2000 and $2500 depending upon how good a deal your dealer cuts you on the replacement TCU. BMW has issued a SB stating that the early builds are not to have the TCU repalced unless the customer is prepared to pay.

BTW, early E60 builds cannot have cradles installed as the wiring harnesses are not compatible with the OEM cradles.
US$ or CAN$ ? (not that it matters a whole lot, its a fair amount of money any way you slice it!)
