I was quoted at $240 for a new guibo installed in my 325is. Is that a fair price for this?? Thanks!

I dont know abou the price if its good.
what i can tell you is,
a guibo does not cost much, i believe less than a 100.

If you have some wrenches and two jackstands.
lift the car, PROPERLY Secure and support the vehiacle on the jackstands and they go in there

to chenge the guibo you dont need to drop the exaust.
the guibo is the big rubber donut between the trasnmission and the tip of the drive shaft.
there are 6 screws there.
3 on the transmission flange to guibo then other 3 from guibo to driveshaft.

its just a matter of uncrewing them and putting the other one in. and if you want to be anal about it, use liquid paper to make mark that you can use the make sure you have the output flange of transmission going in the same place in relation to the drivesaht.

ATT: THE GUIBO HAS AN ARROW ON THE SIDE, THE MUST BE INSTALLED POINTIN FORWARDS. AND TO BE SAFE GET NEW BOLTS WHASERS AND SELFLOCKING NUT.
The advantage of you doing the job is very simple, quality. dont expect the local shop to get you a guibo and breand new bolts. ive work on a car shop for summer. and i know they wont wait for bolts and nuts from the dealer.

get guibo and nuts and bolts form internet.. www.bavauto.com

best thing you can do..

dude, ill swap it for you for $50.
the part is no more than $65.
Do it your self if you can handle a wrench.
$240 is a joke!!!!! tell your mechanic to and GO FIND A NEW ONE!!!!!!!!!

i wouldn't pay anyone over $75 to install it at a shop.
IT IS LESS THAN A 1 HOUR JOB!!!!!!
