The 550i's door close motors are about $400 each, just parts.

It's been around since the E60 and maybe even on the 7 before that, don't remember. But you can still look up the parts cost. As for reliability, that's trickier to say, but considering how useless this feature is in the first place IMHO, I'll pass on yet more weight, complexity, and potential breakage.
