kw v2 installation?

hey guys, i just got my kw v2s and was looking for a reputable installer for my e93. I asked around my area from one store and was quoted $600-700 for installation + basic alignment. Anyone know if theres a good installer doing it for less? I am in the new orleans/houston area.

Not bad, it takes a long time considering the labor.

Should be $200-$300, max. For $600 I would want the entire car tinted as well. lol With 4 people it doesn't take long at all.

Depends on where you go. Thats what I paid. I could have done it myself for free but as I have gotten older I have no interest anymore. Been there done that. lol

Id pay 600. I installed the v1's on my e46 m3 and it took me quite a while. Granted i was using a floor jack, cheap spring compressors, etc. Bout 8 hours of work in my case.
