I was told that cannot be as they are two separate items. A meeting with the SA accompanied by a printout of the REALOEM drawing showing that the two parts are actually connected, resulted in the dealer replacing the cooler at no charge.

I give credit to the dealer for stepping up, but it bothers me that a person with a lesser understanding may have replaced all of the injectors at a cost of $3700.00 ( which was the dealer's recommendation) as well as the EGR cooler, and that person would have been none the wiser while the dealer was enriched by over $5k.

Message- it pays to question the recommendations and learn about what is being told to you. I can only assume that there is a certain percentage of BMW owners who just accept the recommendation/diagnosis and just pull out the CC, thinking, it is a BMW after all!
Everything that you wrote is a great advice,but i wonder how a single injector replacement would be $1500 and 6 for $3700.One reman injector is less than $450.They used to be close to a grand a few years ago.

Yes, the labor was $1100, the injector was $400. The labor to get at the injectors is about the same whether it's 1 or all 6.

To seattle, yes that is the root cause of the injector issue which I learned because I posted here a few weeks ago.
