Thats actually reasonable w/ warranty.
You save effort on finding used & having to clean it. Also used has a risk of bad DISA(and they can fail over time). The Disa replacement actuators could be 300 each at the dealer. Plus DIY install effort is 5-6h( repeat if you need to replace a bad Small Disa).

Given the relationship you have at your dealer, do you think your DME can be flashed with z4 3.0 SI or X5 software @ a low charge? or will you go the AA or Eurocharged route
