auto engineering won't install aftermarket parts???

Hi, I just talked to auto engineering in Lexington to install my performance wheel and they said they won't install aftermaket parts ??? I read another post of shop recommendations and mentioned auto engineering ?

Is there a person there willing to install it if I ask for the right person? I live in Lexington so it would be really good if I didn't have to go out of town ...

Did you talk to Chip? If he said no, then the answer is no. Go to Bavarian Performance Group in Winchester. It's only a couple exits away on 128.

No problem. Glad to be able to help.

The airbag is really a non-issue. It's held on by two springs behind the steering wheel. You just need to stick a thin screw driver into the slits behind the steering wheel to pop it out. It's very easy to do. The only problem that I have seen on here is the steering angle sensor, which can be messed up during install. You might want to bring that up with BPG before the install.
