Received a quote from a high end speed shop to do many of the things that you are doing. I have since decided to start with just LSD, M3 Rear Subframe Bushings, and M3 E93 Front and Rear Sway bars, but here is what I had for labor quotes for much of the other stuff.

Sorry but this seems to be a bit apples and oranges since they bundled some of the costs.

1. With discount, to remove current springs/dampers and install a new TC Kline kit and the front and rear M3 control arms, $1,150 (10 hours)

2. Rear Subframe bushings, old out, new in, $750 (6 hours)

3. They did not separately itemize the sway labor, so it was probably part of #1 of #2 (or maybe a payment time surprise for me). They told me the rear was 3 hours and the front was one hour. In my reduced scope quote this labor was $460.

So, it sounds like you guys are getting it done at a much more modest labor rate and/or the labor hours quoted me are too high.
Quaife LSD w/VAC finned diff cover, M3 Rear SF Bushings, M3 sways & M3 OEM Susp Front/Rear Component Kits (w/o strut brace), GC Caster/Camber Plates, Íhlins R&T coilovers, Goodrich SS brake lines, non-staggered APEX ARC-8 18" wheels with Michelin PSS.
