Also will considering an exhaust upgrade and fix exhaust leak, according to bmw gallery the header gaskets need to be replaced. They quoted $500 just to replace gaskets...

If I were you, I would save the money and buy some 3M heavy duty tape and do the installation of both the splitters and spoiler yourself. Easy to do, there are DYI for them here as well for guidance. Just need a heat gun to remove the back spoiler that is on there now.

As for the gasket, there's a few shops which I've heard good things about: Turners, Ace Performance, Kaizen, Bren Tuning, Bavarian.

Shop around for best quotes.

Are you referring to the header to midpipe gaskets or the header to head gaskets? If header to midpipe, it is not a big job. $500 seems like twice what it should cost.

I did the spoiler myself this past weekend - it's easy, if time consuming (removing the old 3M tape is 90% of the process). Tape works very well, it's rock solid, there's no visible seam and it's not permanent. This is coming form a perfectionist. PM if you need a supply list.
