Gearbox on my M3

I bought a 57 reg BMW M3 3 months ago, it had 25000 miles on the clock and had 2 previous owners. The other day I noticed it needed an oil top up, after opening the bonnett i noticed that it wasnt shutting properly so I took it in to my local BMW dealers. I received a call back to say it would cost 250 inclusive of vat to fix the problem of replacing the hooks. they also said there were 5k worth of other faults (new clutch, brake discs etc) I stated I just wanted to fix the bonnet and to return the car once this has been done. When I recieved the car there was a loud rattling noise coming from under the car and the gears were not shifting properly. i phoned up to complain that they have damaged my car and they requested for me to bring it in. To cut a long story short they stated I needed a new gearbox...they have quoted me circa 6k inclusive of vat and labour. Is this price in your opinion reasonable? thoughts please.
