Honestly for a car with this many miles and almost 7 years old (almost 19k miles a year?), your issues aren't so bad. The only thing that may cost you some $$ is the A/C fault. But so long as it's not caused issues with the battery itself, you're good.

How much do you think it would cost reasonably?

It depends on the extent of the damage or fault. I can't imagine a compressor costing too much. Did the dealer offer a quote? Perhaps someone else can chime in with an itemized cost?

That's not bad for a dealer doing the compressor.

The only thing you should be aware of is that they may come back and find damage to the battery once they get into the project.

However you look at it - $4,800 is expensive.

I looked up your parts on Hubauer.de, so I hope you're sitting down. If you want to view the parts - remove the dashes on your part-numbers. ;)

Electric air-compressor, part number 64 52 9 496 107 is €1,475.11 - ($1,716)
Air conditioning condenser, part number 64 50 6 804 722 is €391 - ($455)
Expansion valve, part number 64 11 6 845 413 is €130 - ($94) + installation kit
Engine mount 22116887267 is €104 ($121) + mount

You can probably source parts and get a good independent to fit them if they know their way around electric vehicles.

I recently replaced the compressor at a local shop here and AC was fine. Then the drivetrain error can back and the AC went out again. The shop that did the original work will now not look at it. I called some more shops in town and they won't touch it either. I really don't want to give in and give BMW 5k, but I'm running out of options.
