Buy the plugs yourself online, take it to indy.

The Indy i use in Burnaby is VERY reasonable and provides top notch service, rates, and workmanship. PM me

I haven't took my m3 to an Indy yet because I just got it in May and I still have warranty left. But I personally have used RG Racing Greed in Port Coquitlam in the past. They finished building/completing one of my project car three years. The staff there are great! The owner, Tommy is very knowledgable and specialized in tuning as they have an in house mustang dyno. Although they mainly specialized in JDM cars, but they can work on euros. Also Lowell who works there have worked on several m3s in the past.

Can you give more feedback on what happened, or what the work was?

Plugs take about an hour to replace. $325 is a lot to pay for an hour of labour.
