X-Pipe fitting - garage recommendation?

Struggling to find a garage that would dare to swap my exhaust over.
Its too difficult and dangerous apparently or they want to charge me
for the M tax once again.

I've brought new bolts, clamps, o2 sensor spacers all ready to go.
Struggling to find someone who is either free (time wise) or
I can trust or some place that doesn't try and rob me.

These are the criterias.
  1. within the 50 mile radius (ideally)
  2. not charge a fortune
  3. be competent
  4. knows what they're doing!
  5. not a monkey

Most Exhaust places that can fit backboxes should be able to do it, or so I would have thought.

What about the place that did you secondary cat mods, etc on your previous M3? Surely they can fit it for you?

Most places here wouldn't even swap a backbox.

2 bolts, 2 clamps, 4 rubber mounts.
Too difficult for them apparently or they want to do it.

So there is no chance for them to fit the x-pipe.

Which requires
2 screws, 2 clamps, 2 more screws, 4 sensors, undertray around the DCT box, 2 bolts holding the x section, 4 screws for the bracket.

Its like building a space rocket to them and will charge 3 hours labour apparently.

I've already contacted Chris long time ago, but he's a busy man...

Soooo it's me again with another garage hunt.
Location: Doncaster

I found a place in Bristol that removed/fitted my OEM back box for 40.
Then I drove down to Chrisc to get my new xpipe fitted, along with some
lube for my bonnet catch and new gloss black side vents at a "undisclosed" sum.

My next exhaust project might take me up to Doncaster,
and need a place to swap 2 exhausts over at the same time.
My OEM for the seller's ********* exhaust.

Any good place around or people from up there?
