I got a quote for replacing a cracked evap canister and vent valve of $651 (parts only). Is this a fair estimate?

Thanks

    That sounds pretty high. I just replaced the canister, vent valve and Leak Diagnosis pump on a 2000 BMW 328ci and the parts were $350 and this is for a BMW! Later this weekend I can check some parts pricing. Is this a dealership? Who is recommending these parts and why? Are there codes? If so, what are the codes? I do Emissions work for a living in Calif. Did your car fail an emissions test? Let me know and I will do my best to add some clarity.

    This price is right on...I deal with these parts everyday. The vent control valve is 120, and the canister is 500ish.

    I just did a quick search online and a canister seems to run from $90-110.00. I don't see anything close to $500.

    Sounds to high for the parts. I checked on the parts for my Nissan Maxima and the 2 parts were about $300 @ O'Reillys.
