There is no set price in the car repair industry. Different shops have different labor rates depending on where in the country you live. You can expect to pay about $200/hour in labor in San Francisco, for example, but in the midwest, you may only pay about $100/hour. It also depends on whether you're having the work done at an independent shop, or a dealership. Some indies are cheaper than dealerships and some are about the same.

MSRP on the fuel pump from BMW is $281.37, plus the rubber seal which is $17.71.

Labor should be about an hour (give or take a little bit), so 1.0 x whatever the labor rate is at the shop of your choice. They may also charge an additional hour for the time they spend diagnosing the problem if necessary, though it sounds like you've already had it diagnosed.
