They replaced mine when they did my valve stem seals back in January/February of this year.
I only have the 1st 4 items that are on your list.
Price are as follows:
$115.85
83.90
101.05
83.90

I was charged around $750 for the whole job of the replacing turbo coolant lines.
Is this to prevent anti freeze from leaking?
Have been noticing my reservoir for anti freeze gets below max level in under a week.

You should never see your coolant at MAX because it should be there only while at normal operating temperature and YOU risk scalding to remove the cap from a hot engine.

Coolant should not be lower than MIN with a cold engine.

Well I got her back today. I definitely can see that the engine is new or at least different upon inspection. But I also noticed they changed my Oil Cap...? Looks completely different. Anyone else?

I will give an update after a month or so of driving. I'm particularly interested in oil consumption and if I will get better MPG...

Congrats.
So what did you get done? The suggested a full engine swap due to the lawsuit?
Mine only qualified for the valve stem seal replacement and they changed the battery as well to the 105.

Been having problems a few months after I got the car back.

Drivetrain malfunction, transmission malfunction

Lessons learned.

Thanks man! So BMW, after doing the oil consumption testing, the resultsaare sent directly to BMW and they determined or suggested an engine replacement. The cost is determined on mileage. Mine fell into the 15% customer pay. Since I still enjoy my car inside and out, and it's been paid for years, and BMW is still offering me 2 years of warranty for anything engine related, this was a good deal for me.

Yea, VERY good deal!
I thought the valve stem seals would be my biggest worry and they came through on the replacement of the seals.
A few months later, I'm getting drive train malfunction and transmission malfunction.

Have an appointment next week.

Sorry to hear that. Stay diligent though. Per the lawsuit, they have to make it right. Hopefully the dealer is competent. I'm not sure what formula determines a "engine replacement"? I was actually surprised mine did. But my car only had 65k miles. And it's a 2010.
