1.5 hours at their regular rate, so $130.

EDIT: make that 2.5 hours....job was harder than anticipated. But still, $215 ain't bad!

honestly if they will do it at their 85/hr rate...i'd do it there. it's a lot of work, and i probably would not want to do it again haha...

Production date of 1508 on both tires.
Reason for sale since I went with 245/35 for the fronts.

Price new on Tirerack $160 x 2 = $ 320 + shipping ~ $25 = $ 345

Asking $ 125 x 2 = $ 250 for both tires. Selling only as a set for now.
Very Interested, Please PM Me

How much is it usually to install Down pipes? I heard that it was very hard to do. I am pretty new on the BMW side of the house, so I am trying to get advises. So far all I have done to my BMW is cosmetics, but I did buy the SSTT (temp) until I get the JB4. I also have the Ksport full suspension and will be installing them on sunday and recently got the BBS CH-R at the house and hopefully put those on this week when I get the tires....

sweet I'll look into cobb, never heard of it though.

any input on h&r race springs?
i know i will have to replace my oem struts. i have looked and read many threads, but local input may make the decision alittle easier. Sports or Race?

My buddie and I did mine. Eh its not to bad if you know what you are doing. Its simple enough just no freaking room to work with.

Im on H&R race, its pretty low. I suggest a pare of shocks also for a smoother ride.
If you are not going to go the coilover route.

The thought of doing it on ramps and the time spent I'd rather pay for it. I usually do everything else on my car though...

I'll talk to Kevin when I pick up my car later today and see what he says. Although $85/hr is pretty damn competitive already....just sayin'!

That would be good, cause, as we can see word of mouth is traveling mighty quick. I mean it is just a way for all of us to support our local business, which I have been told nothing but good things from Cobbs. Its just my opinon

No huge problems, just the usual things to watch out for when your car is lowered.
