How much should it cost to install and paint the LCI aero kit at the dealership?

Hello all,

Has anyone had this part painted and installed at the dealership? If so, how much did it cost?
I am being quoted $1100. (Not including the price of the kit).

Comments?

Ouch... stay away from the dealers... look for aftermarkets.

BTW I would check Xpost as bimmerfest people tend to keep their cars mostly stock.

I'd take it to the body shop and get a quote... BMW dealers will do the same and add on some profit on top of that.

When I was buying the car, I had to have the kit installed and completed, so that was a point of negotiation. One dealer wanted $3600! Another which I ended up with wanted $2300. They gave me the best price on the car so I just went with it as they wouldn't deal any further. At the time, the E70 had only been out a year and there weren't all these do-it-yourself guides. Nowadays you can get it for $900 plus a few hundred more painted. Avg I've seen is $1400 installed ($900 less than me).

Dealer? dealers rarely do their own paint anyway, and their paint quality sucks as most people that use BMW dealers for paint are clueless when it comes to paint quality.

I am getting the dumbest quotes here in Baltimore... 950-1400 just for the front and back. Stupid. Is there a good body shop to do this at for a good price ? I asked earlier but didnt get many responses. I live in Baltimore, but am willing to travel as far as N. VA or somewhere decent in PA. I visit NY once a month so anywhere in or around NYC/Brooklyn would be even better. Thanks alot guys
