Dinan Flash in Edmonton or Calgary (for 335i)

How much are you guys paying for this flash?

I was quoted:
$2500 (tax, parts, labor incl'd) <-- Bavaria BMW
$2300 (parts and labor incl'd, but not tax) <-- Edmonton BMW

and I know someone that has gotten it done for just over $2000 (parts and labor incl'd, but no tax)

Thanks,

One of my buddies paid $2200 plus gst in Calgary. Not enough of a difference to warrant a drive to Calgary though.

I got quoted the same price, perhaps we should go together and maybe get a further discount? Its a joke that bavaria is charging $500 for the install. Its no wonder that they have yet to do a dinan install on a 335.

What I was basically told, was that they are charging:

Dinan Software - $1999.99
+ 10%-15% Mark Up

Rest of the money is in labor.

Yeah that is ridiculous..


*** On a side note, I got a minor scuff on my rear bumper in two places, a bit of the paint came off, and I got quoted $1125 to repaint the bumper at Modern Autobody..

Parts: $279
Labor: $800 something do the math.

Does this sound overpriced to you guys?

I had mine flashed about a month ago at Calgary BMW. Just checked the bill: $2,119 + GST (flash + install).

I didn't even know about it, who is arranging it, is it a bimmerfest?

The least they could do is post it here as a fyi, unless it is a bunch or E46 M3 who don't wanna get beat down

Its put on by BMW owners of Edmonton, if you're on facebook here is the link http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=13405541711. It goes from 2 till 6 at site #1 which is reserved. I believe there is a $5 charge to help cover the reservation of the site. I am thinking of going, wouldn't mind meeting you guys and talk e90 stuff.

You may want to look for one of the micro-repair shops. I was quoted $500 for a very tiny scratch because they have to paint an entire panel. I am going to a shop here in Ottawa called Auto Dentist (http://www.autodentist.ca/) on Saturday -- they are doing the same repair for $110 -- I'll post before/after pix once I have the work done.

Blacklines ftw Leed31, got 'em on mine. Only car that it is not so cool on as white, not really needed. Montego would be sweet.

He said he'll have the MIPP soon for the flash and apparently the MIPP will have the new Stg II (for us) and the Stg III on it (pour moi).

I've never really seen a Blackline'd E90 up close, I've always thought that it would make the car less classy and Pic's don't do these cars justice anyways, so I'll have to see'em in real life.. one day

I think the blacklines would look great on your car. I was at the M3/1 Series/X6 release party at Bavaria and got tons of people complimenting how much better the back looked and asking me about my blacklines. My car is alpine white and think they look great, but everyone has their preferences. Lemme know if you want to see them in person before getting some.

Sparkyq the meet is on saturday, apparently there is are 40 bimmers comfirmed.

Blacklines make any 3 series look better. The sooner I get mine installed the better (I really dislike the stock tail-lights)
