It looks like San Jose BMW will have my sidecar rig finally ready this weekend. It has been there since the beginning of October. They faxed me the bill to review today and I about fell out of my seat. They replaced the motor and clutch, replaced the left fan motor, and put a new rotor and pads on the sidecar that I supplied. The total came to $6700. They had 38 hrs of labor on it. There was a charge of $1600 to diagnose that it needed a new motor and fan. They are telling me they have more hours into it then they are charging me for ($85/hr). There was about $3200 in parts. I was a little shocked by the labor charges. Especially the diagnosis charges. I spoke with the owner and he feels totally justified in the charges and that is how much time his mechanic spent on it. BMW national has denied any warranty work because of the sidecar. National will not even cover the fan saying the sidecar causes the bike to run hotter and causes the fan to run more often causing it to fail. I guess I have no choice but to pay the bill . I was just wondering what you guys thought of these charges and are they out of line considering they had to work on it with a sidecar frame.
