Engine Gasket Oil leak on 330i

I just had an oil change yesterday and found out that I have a small drip/leak of engine oil coming from a worn out engine gasket. Does anyone know how much would BMW dealer charge for a repair like this?

Here is a quote:

If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
