VRSF N54 XDrive Downpipe Install

Anyone around the DC area want to take on a N54 kittyless downpipe install? I have neither the space or equipment to properly do this. Willing to pay and assist. Trying to avoid having it done at a shop as I am getting unbelievable labor quotes.

Mind if I ask what the quotes are that you're getting?

Definitely worth paying to have this done. Dropping the subframe down a few inches isn't exactly hard but would really suck if you didnt have a lift to do it on. Have you checked with GT Peace on what they would charge?

Sounds about right since you have to drop the subframe.

That would be my suggestion. Have worked with them on a ton of stuff.

I've been trying to use GT Peace for awhile but there pricing was asking at the higher end of that range.

At this point I'd rather find a good BMW tech that wants to pull in some side money instead.

I charge half of that for normal DP installs, but stopped doing xDrive because it's such a pain!
