I got a engine malfunction reduced power warning twice in the last couple of months and had my local dealership check it out. They inspected it and indicated that 2 pvc vent hoses and 2 pvc connecting hoses need to be replaced as they have deteriorated and they also discovered that the aux cooling fan was not working to specification. I have extended warranty which covers the aux cooling fan, however the hoses are not. They want to charge $1,300 to replace them and I am wondering if this is normal? My 2010 750i only has 50K kms on it and I am surprised that such hoses would be deteriorated that much already. Any advice? Should I get a second opinion?

I've also notice that if I haven't started the car for a few days it has a screeching sound when it starts almost as if its metal on metal grinding type of sound. But then any subsequent starts don't have that sound only the first one of the day. Any idea what could cause that?
