I'd pay $500 or so, but not $800!
Install of the MOST adapter requires work around the right dash and glovebox area and removing electronics in the center dash. No pulling of seats or running cables to the back, etc.
The kit is $319 List (you can get it for less with BMWCCA or online order) plus two hours (MAX) labor for the install and the coding is free under warranty. Out the door at $500 is the max you should pay.
