Hi Frits, the 116/117 engines are known for external oil leaks at the left side head gasket. As far as a fair price, that's for you to decide. This is a labor intensive job, so make sure your mechanic has done it before. Don't use your car as a guinea pig to try and save a few bucks. It could wind up costing you more in the long run. With that said, clean the engine thoroughly and pin point the cause of the leak before you assume the worst. Good luck
