Silver and polished will look sick on that pearl white body.

I recall paying $700.00 for springs and labor (4 springs, 750i).
But I'm in So Cal where they have lowered 7's before. A place going at it for the first time will probably up charge for the unknown. Go to the biggest and best, if you have one of those.

Springs, installation and alignment will cost about 670 all in.

Trust me my friend... No one is more anxious to complete my project than me.
There's been a delay at the dealer with parts. So I'm just being patient. Just rolling this brand new 5 Series loaner until they give me the word. I'm in no rush since they are adding new parts to my car. Nothing engine related or major but I'm happy their doing it all under warranty.

Realistically it won't be complete with my new mods until next weekend.

I think thats a fair price. Installing springs on this car is a lot more involved versus almost any other BMW.

Are you asking about installing the springs? If so I didn't stick around to watch but I know they had to remove panels from my trunk to get the job done. They worked on the car for about 4 hours.

Exactly what I was asking. About as involved as my e65.
