I bought th car with 39895 miles and the bearings spun at a click over 41000. The previous owner could have abused the car or it could have been do to over revving...we were never sure. The second time was due to the shop failing to replace the oil pump or oil cooler, so debris damaged the motor again immediately upon its first startup and oil starvation was also a culprit (only 7qts were drained when the motor did it the second time).
I'm actually the attorney for the shop that did the work, so my price was cost on all parts and then install. I'm guessing even at retail the whole thing wouldn't have been much more than $2500. Maybe not even that much.
