Final Stage Unit

Just had my Final Stage Unit replaced on my 530i at Munich Motors in Wokingham UK.
Problem was identified accurately.
The part cost 59.50 which seems about right.
Labour charge one hour (not the 10 minutes for DIY) 64.63
Then an additional 58.75 for diagnostic test to reset the computer.
Total 182.88

I was told the diagnostic test and reset had to be done otherwise the fan would continue to malfunction even with the new Final Stage Unit. Is this right?
