whats the reason behind charging the extra 980? maybe there was a hidden problem they had to fix.

Well the BMW dealership will charge you $4k to fix tiny stuff and an oil change

Still - next time find a better indie maybe ?

Bad move taking it to a dealer. They will rip you off bad. Find an Indy shop next time.
