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)

Thanks!

Springs and Exhaust DIY bro lol. Honestly take a day off work and you could get it done. The exhaust should just be a bolt on one correct? And you could get all the supplies you need to do the springs at any Autozone, pep boys, or O'Reilly's.

Its a good learning experience and it'll save you a ton. Just get some guys from the forum who live close by to help. Mod Meet

I got quoted $798 + tax for the installation of H&R Sport Springs by my BMW dealer.

They quoted me (if I remember correctly) around $295 for installing the M Performance Exhaust.

How much are they quoting you for the M Perf. Exhaust itself?

my bad, that 3-400 number was what i thought installation should be for the springs

i am doing port installed, $1335 installed and 400 residualized so it ends up being 935 for the exhaust and that goes into my lease
