Midas and Firestone said that much?

I will say it is a pretty big job even for those places. It can be done pretty quick but after doing it myself, I would want whoever is doing it to make sure they do it right and not hurry too much.

You would be SOOOO much happier if you did it yourself.

Its not hard and you can rent the spring compressor from advance auto parts anyways. As long as you can jack the car up and maybe have a buddy it shouldnt be to hard.

Right off 1604 and blanco, in the Panera parking lot and it starts early. Plus if you get there early you can get a nice parking spot. We should get a bunch of us there.

Just got a 335i Msport 6MT, coming over from a G37 coupe. I have been to cars and coffee like once. I had a slammed silver G if you ever seen me around. Let the modding begin.

Careful with those guys. They scratched my car in a few places when measuring the tint. Sliced it with a blade down to the primer. Some of the tint also came with scratches.

I guess something like that can happen anywhere. All I know is the owner (he was the only one working there when he did mine and now he has more workers working for him and he's expanded his shop) was very meticulous and did a perfect job. And he's done two other cars of mine since and no problems at all. And I've sent some co-workers there that were very happy with him. If he did damage like that...then sue for repair costs...is what I would do...with any place.

Well, I know this is for San Antonio, but I'm from San An..gelo lol so close enough. San Angelo is about 2.5-3 hours away and it's an easy drive. I haven't seen any 335i's in my little city. I bought mine going on two weeks. I go to San Antonio once or twice a month. So maybe I can meet some of you guys one day at a meet.
