What is a reasonable price for Transmission service?

Not very confident in my ability to replace my tranny fluid/filter myself, so I will likely just take it in. What's a reasonable price for this service? The Indy shop I've been using said $800, seems steep no? What's the dealer charge?

Haha come on bro!!' Get some confidence! I'm 17 and I've been considering doing this myself. It's as simple as getting under the car, taking off 20 screws, flush the fluid with a 10$ pump, and replacing the filter. Get the right tools, make sure you have some energy and play some music in your garage. There are step by step videos showing how to do it!!! You may want to change your guibo/mechatronics sleeve as they tend to go bad around 50k

You need to replace the pan and the filter as they are 1 unit. That is $120 alone. Then you need the correct BMW fluid at about 20 bucks a quart. Then labor. I just had this done by my Indy. It cost me $430.
