This stuff is over my local mechanic's head. How much for this at stealership? It's a '97 318.

Actually, it cost $280, not including the ball joint, but including the oil filter and some other minor stuff.
Does anybody else trust a local mom and pop mechanic with fixing their BMW?

BMW Aquarium is an unknown quantity at this point
I was quoted 28.00 for serpentine belt (w/AC) and 38.00 to install.
Haven't gotten to the ball joint yet.
