Colorado Coilover Installation?

Has anybody had coil overs installed for a decent price in Colorado? I am in Fort Collins and called SCR and Bimmerhaus and was quoted 600-700.

According to other threads on here I should be able to get into the 400-500 range.

Thanks!

Talk to ar design. Andrew did V1's on my 335xi back in 2008. Did great work.

I just did V1s on a '11 335xi. It was fairly easy. Look at the video on youtube from ECS.

I'd suggest DIY.

If you have access to a friend or perhaps a board member that has the necessary tools in their garage to do the work, DIY. Seriously, coil overs are one of the easiest parts to swap on these cars.

Thanks for the AR design idea. They gave me a great quote. I have all the tools but thought it was pretty involved. If I would have known it was easy I may have done it myself but I truly got a great price for installation.

thanks guys!

Any chance you would be willing to share the price via PM?

The video on youtube from ecs tuning is in fact very descriptive. Really considering doing this myself.

Coilovers are a relatively easy install....reinstalling the stock springs (like when you just install camber plates) are not

I installed h&r springs on my friends f10 535...not sure if that's much different or not, but thought it was easy.

My H&R's should be here by Friday. Wheels are getting ordered at some point tomorrow.

If you still need help on install, moto, I'm doing the install on mine at a friends place as soon as my wheels show up.

Oil Change in Springs?

Best place to get a good oil change/regular maintenance on my 335 in the Springs? Same places listed above, or does anyone else have a different recommendation?

The dealer has always been good to me and my friends. Pm me if you need any recommendations. I'm local and also very diy savvy.
