Holy crap! Now I see where you got those numbers . I tallied up an order just to see what I am looking at. Shipping included, with a pulley in there as well, total was about $150. The previous owner's mechanic robbed her blind .

Very true. My brother has a '99 328 as well. His is bone stock and he never got it checked under the recall, but has had no problems with the car. Car has right around 150k miles and still runs great. Doing the vanos seals and a couple other items for him in a couple weeks. Definitely a great car.
