Labor for installing accessories/aftermarket parts?? Springs, Exhaust, Sirius

Just looking for some input on the labor rates people are paying for accessories. Several of the local European independent shops are telling me $90-98 per hour, and are unsure of how many hours it will take them to swap out my springs for H&R Sports, and then perform an alignment. I'm also looking to install the M Performance exhaust.

My local BMW dealership service advisor quoted me the following over the phone:

Sirius- $65 labor + $350 for the enable code
Springs- $750 for the fronts!! + $265 for the rears
M Performance Exhaust- $258

I would really appreciate if any of you could share how much you paid to have your aftermarket springs or M Performance exhaust installed. (at BMW or an independent)
