Had the same hex 44 code intermittently. Replaced with genuine BMW part a few weeks ago. Too early to tell if it solves my problem.
Very easy to replace; don't think you need to go to a shop.

BMWs are expensive to maintain and repair.
Maybe you got a good deal because the car needed some repair and/or due for maintenance?
The question is where do you want to spend that $9.50?
