Question guys, requesting opinions? Local performance shop owner traded in his 08 M3 and removed the Cabon Fiber accessories and Springs he purchased. He is offering them to me for purchase. All parts have 8k miles on them and appear to be in very good condition. Let me know what you guys think, parts price and install price.

1. BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler
2. BMW M Carbon Fiber Front Splitter for left and right side.
3. H&R performance Springs.

He is asking $750 for the parts.

$242 to remove old wing and install the Carbon Fiber parts. Some kind glue is need as well, this is included in install price.

$600 to install and Balance the springs.

Ok price for the parts. The installation you can do yourself with basic tools. I wouldn't pay someone to remove parts that they are selling me. Balance springs? Someone is trying to take advantage of you.

I don't know if they are balance springs. They are the Front and rear Springs for the car.

They are just springs. Nothing special needed to install them.

The HR springs will not add anything to the cars handing over stock springs on the 2010 e92?

They are not worth the install price? Should I contact the deal and ask their install price?

Yes, the springs will offer better handling.

I would not pay the install price. The price on the parts is fine.

Springs / suspension installation should be around $200-250, definitely not more! You must have misunderstood something or he's trying to bend you over.

The dealer wants $900 to install the springs. I understand what you guys are saying about not having someone else install the parts. However I have no idea how or the ability to do that.
