The dealer says it is a AUD$5000 repair bill. They say it is the ESP pump? which is at fault.

Any ideas?
Your dealer may be right and the price sounds right also. Your symptom is uniqe in that for most, if not all the cases published thus far, the failure is usually electrical - sensor - and not mechanical like in your case. Do you really have ABS,BAS,ESP failure? WhenI first had these lights on my 02 320 (I don't recall what combination came on), I went into an open area and tested the ABS/BAS/ESP and all worked fine, despite the lights. Good luck buddy. That's a pretty stiff bill!!! I'd negotiate with them, get MB involved and cite all the numerous ABS/ESp/EST/BAS issues published to date. Provide data from this and all the other sites you've gotten info from. Ask them to go half/half or let them do parts and you do labor or something to split this bill. if you play right you may get lucky.
