The Eisenmann exhaust system takes 2 hours to install max. Our installer has done so many by now that it only takes him 30mins

My guy that did the install (his first time ever doing install on this particular exhaust) took less than an hour to do it. He only charged me $75. Everything fits and lines up perfectly.

It really depends on the labor rate of the shop. I wouldn't pay anymore than $200.00- $240.00. Our labor rate here is only $46.00 an hour.

Mantis are you taking your M3 to Midas? just j/k around

Most good shops have a labor rate from $95-$145. One hour is too short if it's the shops first time installing an E92 M3 Eisenmann system.

Not if they know what they are doing. My guy works on mostly Porsche and Ferrari and he said the install was one of the easiest he has ever done on any car.
