front aero lip, NEED HELP!!!

So, I went to the BMW dealership today. I asked them how much the front OEM aero lip special order will cost. They told me 443 dollars. Then i asked how much to paint and install they said paint is 400 to 500 dollars and installation is 400 to 450 dollars. I dont know if im being totally ignorant but, those prices seem WAY TO HIGH for me. Can anyone help me to find a way to purchase it, paint, and install it under 800 dollars? thank you.

Assuming you have a 335i coupe, this ought to put those ridiculous prices into perspective... http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462.

Either your dealership is crooked or a bunch of retards! Or BOTH!!!

Just to clarify,
  • Kalsha's BMW dealership = stealership!
  • Tischer BMW != stealership.

400-500 just to install the aero lip.....dayuummm!!!

I would only charge you $ 100 .

Seriously, find a another place to get the lip....go to the vendor section and of course PM Longtran.

You can get an M-Tech front from Lewis@MWDesign for that price and it looks nicer than the aero lip.

+1 for Tischer, some online vendor wanted 860 for the OE black headliner, whereas Tischer charged me 300+ less for the same headliner. Mad props to Evan and Jason!

Last time i checked, it was 475 painted and shipped to your door from mr Longtran. Not to mention he will probably install it for you if you ask nicely hahah.

I am a Service Manager for Ford and you are being completely ripped off. Paint should be no more than $200 and labor pays maybe 2.5hrs for install max. Ask them what labor guide they are using....

+1 PM Longtran was under 500 painted and shipped - paint was mint, got it quick and monkeys could install the thing in 30 minutes!

The "!" he put in front of the "=" is supposed to mean "does not equal," hence he's saying Tischer isn't a stealership.

I missed it too for a second.
