Where to install your springs

Planning to install springs for the car, but I'm thinking if I should just go to a local tire/wheel shop to have them install it, or if i should go to a more BMW specified tuner/body shop that's a bit further from where I live.

Are springs that hard to install that I should drive the extra kms?

They are actually quite easy to install.

Any competent shop should have no issue installing them for you. But I personally would travel to the BMW shop.

^^

I'm in Vancouver,

I asked the BMW specified one, and they quoted me 500 dollars install and allign

This is how much they usually go for?...'cause for 500 bucks I'm very motivated to learn how to do it and do it myself...

For that price, I'd be motivated too to do it myself!

2.5-3 hours max I believe it should take a shop to do it.

Do you have any place you can recommend to me? Since I see that you are in BC, too (btw, I'm in Vancouver)

Unfortunately, I'm in Prince George. So I am not familiar with the shops in Vancouver. Sorry
