Cost to install a spark plug insert?

1995 - 2001 (E38) - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum - forums.bimmerforums.com
A friend with a 740i managed to take the threads out with a spark plug, and the dealer says BMW does not authorize a field repair, and the only fix is a $9000 head replacement.

No local shops will warranty the job, and they want almost $400 to do it at that, which my buddy says is outrageous (I say it's cheaper than $9000, though!). The cost for an insert/heli-coil is under $10, so what is a reasonable fee he should have to pay to have one installed, and do they usually hold up?

Thanks
