BMW Oil Pan, Oil Pump?

How long does it take for a mechanic to change a lower oil pan %26amp; oil pump on a 1996 BMW 4.4 liter V8?BMW Oil Pan, Oil Pump?
depends on whats around the oil pan. the pan may be over an axle or it may have a frame crossmember running across it .BMW Oil Pan, Oil Pump?
I would guess it could be done in 4 hours, but since the crossmember has to be removed, and who knows what else, it may take some guys 6 - 8 hours. What does the dealer's Labor Rate Book say is authorized to do this job.BMW Oil Pan, Oil Pump?
10 hours.labor by the book.

but, that car is not a simple car,many things envolved.add a couple more.
