Post 2012 750i boost solenoid location

Iíve taken my 2012 750i xdrive to the stealership and they say I need a new Boost solenoid. The price I was quoted was $1500. I have found the solenoid for $75 and canít believe itís $1425 worth of labor to install. Can anyone direct me to a DIY or at least tell me where the thing is located on the engine to see if itís worth the attempt. Iím a pretty good shade tree mechanic. Thanks

I know this is old, but what a bitch it was the replace the diverter valves without removing the turbo. Mine had oil leaking out of the connectors, looks like I'll be rebuilding turbos soon.
If I had to do it again, I'd remove both turbos, and while I was at it I'd also as preventative maintenance replace the turbo oil drain lines that tend to coke up.
