We purchased a bmw 1 series 118d, 2006 plate with 60k miles on clock about 2 months ago, which is 3 months out of warranty.

The DSC light came on the dash.

It went into BMW today for the diagnostic check which cost 69.

They confirmed unit had gone.

The report said " DSC COMPLETE UNIT REQUIRED 1830.16 inc program goodwill recieved cost to customer 406 all inc as bmw will give 100% parts, valid till 12/11/09"

My question is should we pay the 406, or should we contact BMW main customer services to try and meet them halfway with the labour costs as most people have done???

How long does it take to change the unit??? If it takes one hour, that means they charge 406 per hour.

Your thoughts would be appreciated

cheers guys
