Unhappy Power Steering on my 330i

Well, well, well. Again, she got me! My wife backed into my 330i and damaged the hood and cracked the famous kidney bean grill. Oh, I let that go..about $1000 worth of damage. But here is the kicker...she drives three weeks later to pick up her son and when she gets back the power steering is gone. This isnt the first car she has destroyed of mine..while we were dating she wrecked my Explorer. I shouldve taken that as a harbinger of things to come.
Anyway, where can I get a decent price on the power steering pump? I would like to change all the associated hoses too since the car has 100K on it.
All help is greatly appreciated.

well, first you need to determine whether it's the pump or the rack. you will kick yourself in the ass if you replace the wrong part.

No, I owned a shop in Fresno, sold it, worked at a dealer in Roseville, moved away and work for BMW now. Just never updated my location, I'm everywhere all the time. Kinda like Jesus.

Why? Need some work done? I do have access to a full shop in the area though.

Hey gang, I got my power steering fixed at MagCars yesterday. It came to $905. But it does ride like a dream again! I'm back, bitches!

...push the pedal to the metal...
