What should my dealer be charging me to purchase and install a Universal Transceiver? I'm getting a quote from my dealer for $179 for the part (retail) plus 2-3 hours labor (what?).

Is it possible to purchase and install myself? How easy is the install?

You should be able to get it for less... I paid about $140-145 or so including shipping about a year ago from Cutter...

Very easy DIY -- took about 20 min or so -- and there are a couple DIY instructions on the web. the instructions I followed were at the link below -- click on "Tech" on their menu and you should be close...

I got a UGDO from Pacific BMW for $139 + shipping.

2-3 hours labor is ludicrous. It's a 15 min. DIY, maybe a half hour if you have problem locating the power cable (i.e. tucked back under passenger visor). I just installed one on my wife's 323i last weekend.
