BMW are no longer replacing the whole DCS hydraulic unit like they were doing at the start when this issue raised its head. Then they were replacing the unit at a cost of 1200 plus labour but have since provided a fix that isolates the valve thats failed inside the unit at a much reduced cost. My dealer confirmed that BMW will not now authorise a full replacement unless there are other serious issues and that just the new fix costs BMW no more than around 160 for parts and around 8 for brake fluid as that needs changing as part of the repair.

In reality anyone going to a dealer now should be paying very little for this repair and if BMW pay for the parts the labour should be no more than 250 as most charge 120 per hour and its a two hour job - apparently.
