Unhappy Repairs Local Guy vs Dealership 07 335i

Has anyone needed their Vanos Solenoid Valve and Mechtronic Sleeve replaced?

I'm looking at a huge cost difference between the dealership and a private local garage that specialized in German autos.

As expected, the dealership would be more expensive, but 3 times as much?

Furthermore, my extended warranty is not all is boasted to be when I purchased it.

If you don't mind please respond with approximate costs of:
Vanos Valves?
Mechatronic Sleeve?
and Oil Filter Gasket?

Please and Thank you.
