I think you finally got them closer to a slightly more "reasonable" price.

We have been taken to school by manipulative shop owners who made us feel cornered and without options. That is why we now are very specific with what we want and what we DONT want done...you have to verbally outline everything up front. ( most of us dont know whats involved in a complicated job and dont know how to outline what we dont want....we are hoping to be dealing with an honest mechanic who has integrity....but often find we are just part of a larger system that has 8 ways from sunday to manipulate you.)

Biggest thing we came away with was this: Always tell any mechanic that you want no work done unless you give the verbal go ahead. outline up front what the diagnosis will cost, or at least get an estimate in writing!.....

You have one thing before you commit to any work being done. TIME. take it!...ask your questions elsewhere and get all the info you can, then go back the next day with a plan. They will be ready for you either way.....

I swear they try to derail you just for the sadistic pleasure of it all!...

I think you did well in the end. Good for you for sticking to your guns.

Yea but see my clutch was in a billion pieces (Not literally) and im the 3rd owner. BMW NA even said they can't assist me so I'm not sure if they just don't want to cover it or they are being legit about the used car warranty because now they said it will be covered when I was told by everyone else it shouldn't? Am I in good standing or should convince them to cover more? I do have the 50$ deductible agreement. Had to pay it plenty of times when fixing the car.

Tbh If I was in my hometown this wouldn't have been a problem but since I was far from home and the fact that I was suppose to leave the night it broke down made me panic and had no where to take it but the dealer. I really didn't want to tow my car all around jersey to find an indy because I broke down on the Parkway a good 2 hrs away from where I stayed. It's all good now, parts should come in tomorrow and hopefully they said it will be done by tomorrow night!

Pay the $2,800 and run. The MSRP on the flywheel is $1,200. You are probably getting the best deal you can at this point.
