Mechanic is charging $440 to replace front right wheel speed sensor

Is that a reasonable price?! I have a 2001 model, if that means anything

Huh, speed sensor? Never heard of it. If you can find out what part it is check the price on http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do?vin=XXXXXXX (substitute the last 7 of your VIN for XXXXXXX in the link)

You 'can' test them, by the way.
- How to test the BMW wheel speed sensors with a DMM (1)

Here are my results, for example, from a few years ago:

Or you can connect a laptop with INPA on it and see which wheel is not sending data back to the ECU.

INPA question

Upallnight, can you elaborate on INPA. Have a scanner but apparently that won't be sufficient for future diagnosis, would like to know more. Thanks

Any software written specifically for BMW will provide you with the Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) when you connect the laptop to the car and ask the software to scan for DTC. I used Carsoft 6.5 when I had an E34 Touring and I am now using BMW scanner 1.4. I also carry a bluetooth OBD II scanner with my X and have the App Torque on it. I can scan for some trouble codes but not BMW specific codes.
