i'd say between 300-400. Install does take a few hours. I doubt you will find anything cheaper than 300 and if you do it's probably not legit unless you know the person.

I paid $400.00 with the wheel alignment plus a free adjustment when my rims go on. Not a bad deal considering on my g35 I paid like $150.00 for the spring install plus maybe $75.00 for an alignment. Your going to have to pay some type of premium for driving a car that has a m badge on it.

We book it at about 2.5 hours of labor at a rate of $105. Comes out to $263. Alignment is an additional $80 with any suspension work done here.

$250 for springs, $300 for coilovers

Go to Auto Talent, their work is extremely professional. Highly recommended in the Los Angeles area

This attitude is the reason why we get over charged for things that shouldn't be so. Do not pay over $250 max.

I paid $200 for the spring install with a vendor on here. For my alignment, I called the local BMW dealer to and was told they would do it for $489 Needless to say, I will be taking it to West End instead.

I think VIPstatus in torrance does it for 200ish. Dont quote me on that. but it should be somewhere close to that.

I think they said it was 500 for H&R springs + labor and i believe 625 for RD sport springs + labor.

Im just deciding on whether to go with H&R or RD sport at this rate. Cant decide.

I have quotes from two shops here in the Philly area. Please sit down before you read further! $1150.00 including alignment $850.00 including alignment Do these shops think because we drive M's that were stupid enough to be robbed!?

Vivid Racing quoted me $450 which included alignment. I ended up doing it myself, even though that is a great price.
