Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I recently noticed an engine skip on my way to the airport it cleared up over the course of few miles, the engine light did come on. a week or so later I dropped it off at the dealer to have the checked, they are telling me that one of the oil pumps is bad costing 6500.00 seems a little strange since it seems to somewhat unrelated. anythoughts?

Low oil pressure could cause VANOS (VVT) problems, however $6500 is a very high price to replace the pump. The pump assembly is about $900 and the labor is about 12 hours and need to add oil, filter and oil pan gasket. I don't know what's their labor rate, but based on their estimate it seems to be over $400....
I'd get a second opinion from a BMW specialty shop. Do you happen to have the diagnostic trouble codes?
