I can't speak to whether the price is fair, but preemptively replacing an eight year old thermostat sounds like a good idea to me. They do fail.

I completely agree, replacing an old thermostat is a good idea. Just make sure you go to a BMW experienced mechanic. If your not going to the dealer that is.
