As for the parts Tischer is a BMW dealer but for some reason the parts are way cheaper than what my parts department quoted me.
You need to consider that the dealer was actually experimenting with their first Assist TCU retrofit installation, and that cost real money as the dealer is not going to assume any risks. Otherwise this was, as you already found out, an hour job at most.
