I got quoted 800 dollars AUD a few days back. The gasket costs 15 dollars or so and they want the replace the oil filter whole housing unit. I'm pretty sure it's only the gasket that needs replacing. I said i'll think about it. What a load of bullshit! Straight after, I took the car to my old bmw specialist and he said " Just needs gasket inside and a clean up " got quoted $160. Now that's more like it

I got quoted around $500 for the oil filter housing gasket to which I said, No thanks. Shouldn't take more than an hour if your a good mechanic, right? Especially a BMW master tech.

My dealership wants $38 for a can of BMW coolant.

Best I can tell, that is double the MSRP listed on Tischer.

Is that the coolant that is needed for this job?
What is the name on the label? and what color? If I may know
