If this failure was out of warranty, what would it have cost?

My 335i is currently at the dealer getting the following parts replaced:

- All 6 injectors
- Both catalytic converters
- O2 sensors

Just out of interest, how much would this have cost me out of warranty, including labour charges (roughly)? Thanks!

what year is your 335i if you dont mind me asking? Whats the milleage on the clock?

Im slightly worried about my 335i long term relliability, only got her recently however luckily its used approved so has 12 month warranty, which I will have to extend after hearing all these big bills

It was built in September 2007 and has 23,000 miles on the clock. I always use Shell V-Power petrol and I have it serviced every 7,500 miles so it has been babied really.

Always have a warranty! So far mine's had a new steering column, new mirror motor, many software updates to fix the gearbox jerkiness (which haven't worked) and now all this stuff. BMW have definitely lost money on my car I reckon with all the parts they are replacing!

Is that a dumb question?

I thought warranty was void if you had a remap?

I was thinking of getting one but i'm glad I didn't now - wouldn't have wanted to pay this bill! If I ever wanted more power the BMW Performance kit is as far as i'll go

Value of those works is well over 3k.

Won't cost BMW that but at retail I reckon it is the best prt of 5k's worth.
