Likely charges are $135 per hour at many BMW, Mercedes dealers, etc. Dealers charge Corvette owners a special "Corvette tax" for parts and labor.
do it yourself without putting the jack thru the floor or the underbody panels. Rear end on newer models is alum. Floor jacks and alum rears do not mix well. But then another rear can be bought for just a few grand plus labor and incidentals.
Jiffy Lube type. Please ask mgr there if they will cover little mistakes like the tech failing the tighten the oil plug? Those plugs have been known to fall out if not properly tightened. If that shop agrees it was their fault, they will pay the first few thou out of their pocket. Then the ins kicks in--if they have not cancelled the ins. Also, they might claim that you should have noticed the RED oil light on the panel and immediately stopped driving. If you admit that you continued to drive with the RED light on, you just might be cooked. If they do replace the engine, they will try to locate the cheapest engine they can find. You don't mind them saving a few $$, do you?
Boy, I am in rare form today.
