Hi, I just purchased a "cherry" 99 750 iL with low miles (78K), and took it to a local Bimmer specialist who informed me that the rear driver's side window "regulator" is going, and that one day soon, it might get stuck open. I suspect that "regulator" is the US equivalent term of the "actuator." The estimate to replace it was $USD 580! I looked up the part & it costs about $75. Is the replacement so involved that over $500 for labor is fair?
