Default 2006 E61 remote keys not working

Took to BMW and was advised fatigued and broken wires in tailgate harness causing electrical malfunction. Service bulletin SI B61 07 10. Was told cost will be $3900. Terrible. Any other similar problems? This is a sport wagon bases in USA>

Has anyone negotiated with BMW on repair costs

I had a similar problem in my 2008. I looked at wires, I ended up splicing them myself. When inspecting them - they did not appear to have been stretched/snapped. I think they get cut on a sharp edge inside the top of the roof.

It is a PITA to change, but if you have the time. There is a write up somewhere on how to do it.
