That said, my dealer just quoted
$350 for the part
$180 for the install (3 hours total, the last hour is recoding and BMW pays for that)
+ tax

Total $550ish

Find another dealer. The part lists for $300, and most dealers give at least 10% BMWCCA discount. Install is 0.75 hours, per the BMW install doc. Details of both are in this thread.
