Auto Transmission Fluid replacement

Could somebody please let me know of an independent BMW mechanic about 15 miles or so around Buena Park, CA who is capable of doing an auto transmission fluid replacement on a 528i.

Shelly BMW has quoted $579 for the job, which sounds like they think it is 2 hours labor.

Thanks

Too bad they are also 375 miles away from Buena Park! Oh, just in case you were looking for a competitive price quote, I guess checking w/ GMS is good. hehe
