If you are not comfortable sticking your hands in dark, tight spaces and in contact with gasoline and gasoline smell, definitely have it done for that price! If I had to do it again I definitely had it done.
I might have an indy do it then. I thought it would be easier - like the E46. Its cold as crap anyway right now and I don't have a garage. The last thing I want to do is get high of gas fumes while I'm shivering.
