Electronic oil measurement

Hello everyone. I took my 2013 335xi to a reputable shop that specializes in German luxury cars to replace all sorts of oil gaskets. It wasn't my first time servicing my car there. This time after the repair the electronic oil measuring stops working. The guy tells me that it is 100% impossible that they did it. Well, that means I got into my engine, broke the measurement, and then went back to the shop and complained. Does anyone have any idea what happened and what the rough repair cost is?

It could be as simple as a disconnected wire.

Looking at RealOEM Oil Level Sensor
There is a large gasket which might of been replaced and a large connector to a wire harness. I'm not sure where this is on the engine, maybe someone else will know.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy ****, what a ride!"

Oil condition level sensors are prone to failure. See PuMA Measure 29604954.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)
