Wheels+Coilover Install

Is $900 reasonable for 19" wheel and tire balancing and mounting, alignment, and KW Coilover install??
That's what I was quoted from Bavarian Performance Group in MA

Wow, that's a lot. Wheel balancing costs like $50-75, alignment $100. C/o install around here costs around $250. Even if your rates are more there that sounds like a lot.

I received a high quote from a shop when uninstalling coilovers in my RSX type S. So I told them that I would be right over to pick up my parts and go somewhere else. Ended up saving hundreds!!

...then obviously it wasnt to much or did you not know the price until after dropping the stuff off.

Not trying to seem mean but you gotta do research and then give your parts to a shop. Otherwise you will get raped every time.

Bavarian knows their BMWs... but $900 for coilovers and alignment shouldn't cost more than $450 even on the 'higher' side of the $ spectrum..

A full 4 wheel alignment from them is $250 a pop...... It's definitely on the high side, comparable to the dealership.

I had mine done at Ballistic Motorsport in NH. Full KW coilover setup, and just did the alignment at Sullivan. Call Scott (his website can be found online) he gave me an incredible deal!

Please tell me what shop in New England will charge only $50-$75 to MOUNT AND BALANCE 19" I-forged reverse drop wheels. I'd love to just sub-let to them.

I called Turner before I went to John at BPG. I got almost the same price quote from them. They were a tad bit more expensive. So I went to BPG. Just picked up my ride yesterday. KW's, Iforged 19's and some other small stuff. They are good guys over there. John, I'll be by hopefully Friday to get my stock rims and tires. THanks again!!
