In any case, I'd rather do this myself rather than wait for appointment and pay for 2 hours of labour (~$250+ tax) - the estimate they gave me!
You're misunderstanding me.

I took my car to a BMW "mod" shop, you know, an enthusiasts place where non-BMW personnel do this 24/7 for a living.

They charge $100 an hour and I paid $35 because it was a 25 minute job.

These are the guys I used down here in NJ; I'm sure you've got a similar place up there:

Even though I went in for a pretty silly mod, they were extremely helpful and did a great job in a short amount of time, taught me a thing or two about my F30 and might help me take care of that body roll in the Spring.
