Paint and install mtech skirts and rear mtech bumper on E92 is this too much?

$1011. Quote from RPM in Laurel.

How much are people paying...for this type of work. Seems kind of high.

thats a ripoff IMO. do u have an itemization?

i've watched people do the install and cant imagine its more than 1 hour of labor each for the bumper and sideskirts.

No, just talked to the them on the phone. Told them what I wanted to do. Gave them my vin number, paint code, and what I had to get painted and installed. Guy ran some numbers and came back with the figure. I can install the side skirts my self as I have installed Harman sides on my old E46. Nit sure about the rear bumper.

So I might go over there and get the estimate. And take that estimate to a couple of other shops to see if they can beat it. I was hoping it was going to cost around $500 to $700 for this work.

Any shop recomendations out there?

if you can install the side skirts, you can probably do the rear bumper. i think there's a DIY on this board somewhere. plus, worst case, PM Sniz for some advice since he's done it a few times.

personally, you really just need to get paint quotes from a couple of different places.
