I've had a case at a diesel pump where an unleaded gasoline nozzle was used instead of the auto diesel nozzle, which really is the old leaded gasoline size nozzle. And yes, it really was a diesel...

I've heard $10k, $11k and $16k.

Did they replace the entire fuel system 100% to help ensure a HPFP failure won't happen again?

$6k is cheap and sounds too good to be true. It may be $6k if only the HPFP is replaced. It's usually around $16k because a HPFP failure requires a 100% fuel system replacement to ensure a failure...

Since whatever car I own and drive absolutely HAS to be DIESEL powered, I couldn't own a BMW if it runs on gasoline. I have never owned a gasoline BMW.... and won't.

Also check the airbox and air filter and all connections before the turbo to make sure everything is sealed properly. You don't want to be sanding your engine and turbo with unfiltered air.
