I got one estimate of $6K, but I also felt that this shop wasn't eager to do the work. I want to go to a shop very familiar with this work, right tools, knowledge etc. I do feel that good work costs but I also want to do some due diligence before spending that much. SO,.. please tell me what you are talking about. Your note is unclear to me.

6K is lite! It's a 6K transmission and you still need 10 hours to install and program it. You'll spend in the neighborhhod of 8K to do it right. We redo 10 jobs a year on BMWs that were damaged by those who just don't have the tools or experience.

For this car I would recommend Four Car Garage on Calif. Dr. in Burlingame. Let them know Gary from Pacific Auto sent you.
