I just had the pleasure of paying $200 for replacing the upper radiator hose for my 2001 540i at BMW of Dayton. I was told this hose has a plastic end which requires a spring loaded clamp to secure it. The hose was $58 plus antifreeze/labor/etc. Whatever. Has anyone else had this experience? Does anyone know a reliable and fair priced Bimmer mechanic in the Dayton/Springfield area? Thanks for any help.
