I just bought a 2000 BMW 323Ci and I took it to a shop to get it inspected and they told me it had a radiator leak. Here's what they quoted me

Parts:
- Radiator $276.02
- Radiator flush/sealer kit $22.44
- Nissan Blue Coolant $28.95
- Shop supplies $39.98

Labor:
- Radiator removal and replace $172.69
- Cooling system flush $71.10
- Disposal Fee $2.00

Total price: 613.18 (not including Arizona tax)

I would rather do this job myself for only $200-$250 instead of paying $650! If there is anyone who lives in the Phoenix area that could help me make this a DIY I would really appreciate it. Or if anyone knows links to video tutorials on YouTube or someone on this site where I can replace the radiator myself I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone.

Man, $613 for replacing a radiator is nothing but galling. I'd run Bars leak through that mutha ad infinitum before paying that much.....
