BMW will pay for the labor. Don't let this diminish your excitement - pick up the car, then call them next week about programming the stop/start. At that point, see if they still expect you to pay for the labor - if they do, go to another dealer to get it done. I just got mine done today and as with every other person on here who has had it done, the cost to me was $0. I would not worry about it at all.
