535xi liftgate repair - fair price????

Have 2008 535xi with bad hydraulic motor for rear lift gate. I am seeing pricing to repair ranging from $800 to $3000 from dealers and web sites! What is the REAL price? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thx.

I had that same issue on a 2008 Audi A8. The dealer charged just over $800, but that included a new motor and hinge for the right side !

Try to search it on ebay. I believe, it takes 200-300$ to get used one.
Btw, you sure it is hydraulic motor? Did you check oil level?
