Okay so if the shop charges me $800 to install (where negotiations/pricing is now) then I can justify that $650 is the cost of the install of the springs and $150 of it is the allignment which Dinan recommends and is needed. If that is the case the install cost looks more reasonable.

The springs still are a bit expensive but with 5% from the shop and 15% from Dinan that may be more doable, easier to swallow.

I got a PM on a set of RD Springs for $350 and have found H&R's for $300 and Eibach's for the same so the Dinan springs at $700 (with discounts) are still almost twice that but do include new bumps stops, guides, and a warranty to match my manufacturer's which isn't a bad idea as costly as parts are on the M and how some dealers react to aftermarket adjustments.

Anybody else with more research info out there?

Yeah I got quoted the free loaner too for the duration of my install included in my install price. :
-Install
-Alignment
-1-2 day loaner
-warranty 4yr/50k

So with H&R or Eibach ($350parts + 150 alignment + 300 labor=$800 total) saving maybe $600 on the install and part side of the equation VS Dinan shop discounts which look to cut the cost to a total around $1500 is what we're looking at? Hmm now that's food for thought!
