Does $117 for an oil-level sensor sound OK?

My oil-level warning light comes on intermittently. I called CircleBMW and they quoted me $117 for a new sensor (just for the part). Sounds kinda high to me. Has anyone else replaced their's? Or had their's replaced at the dealer? How much did you spend?

I've had a number of them, but to date, all have been covered by my CPO. $117 sounds a little high, but who is to say what it "should" cost... Hope you can find it cheaper somewhere else...

I just checked my usual "cheapest" parts ordering places, and found it to be around $113 - $117. So that price is probably about right, unfortunately. Good luck!
