Question M3 SMG Pump issues

Was browsing ads and found 2002 M3 SMG for a good price of 12k

One problem, it has an issue with smg pump. The owner was quoted $2400 for repair.
I was thinking about it...

$2400 quote for smg pump. Half of that will go to labor and $1200 for parts.
If there is an issue with o ring or a single thing on smg pump, the dealer will replace whole unit anyway. Thus high price.

Even if smg pump is out it shouldnt cost 2400 to replace it manually.

Any info on that from m3 smg owners?

P.S. Haven't yet rode in my 325i ><
