Question $1300.00 to replace a starter ? How much did you pay?

Question $1300.00 to replace a starter ? How much did you pay?
It seems that my starter(2006 325i,6spd ,68,000 mi) has suddenly gone bad (no warning) I replaced the battery today (6.5 years old )thinking I might get away cheap ($134.00,AAA mobile battery service),. Still no start ,I'm new here in Vegas , don't know any Indy mechanics here that I trust ,so I bit my tongue and had it towed to the local BMW dealer here in Henderson. Imagine my surprise when the service adviser called to quote me $1300.00 to replace the starter! I Know its a labor intensive job (plenum removal) but can anyone verify the estimated labor time for this job, the few search results I have found put the cost at $650- $900.If i could Get a copy of a dealer invoice or estimate to help me try to negotiate some kind of discount ,That would be very much appreciated ! http://www.e90post.com/forums/images...es/mad0259.gif
