It would be interesting to hear the dealer pricing on this for a laugh.
Get a good side mechanic, or you and a mechanical friend. The gaskets are dirt cheap.
Also verify closely it is indeed a pan gasket leak, and not something above it. I used brake cleaner and got the area cleaned and dried out, only to find when I isolated the leak it was a head gasket leak, much to my disappointment. Still haven't repaired it yet (soon now).
