Mod Workshop in WA

Hi Guys!

I am planning to install VRSF DP and ETS FMIC soon on my E92 335i.

I got a quote from a workshop in WA for $1500 to install the above. I thought that was way too dear. What do you guys reckon? The way I see it, assuming 8 hrs for the above work, we are looking at $187.5/hr.

So, is there any other mod workshop in WA that you guys would recommend?

Cheers!

Ramp Auto Group, Malaga...

http://rampautogroup.com.au/

Should be $650 total I reckon for that.

Are you sure the VRSF DPs fit properly though?

Thanks Stu!

I will check them out.

As for VRSF DP, I believe it should fit in without any issue according to the reviews in this forum. If not, I will definitely go with AR DP.

You didnty get your quote from a place in Bibra Lake did you?

Got conned there big time, wont be going back.

I have spoken to Adrian at Malaga and he sounds very knowledgeable.

I'd say a DP (pita) and FMIC would be around $700 to $900.

Nah, it was in Bayswater.

Yeah, spoke to Adrian. Will go there once the parts are here. Can't wait.

I'm now reading review on Qualife LSD and man......I'm itching to order that in my next batch!

I just got my Quaife installed... really good fun!

Car is totally transformed... can't wait to try it out [properly] in the wet and at the drags...

If you're auto, should be a 2k proposition.
manual, well maybe a little bit of change from 5k.

AFAIK all autos are bolted.

Some manuals are bolted, ~03/2007 they changed to welded.

My June07 Build 6AT 335i would tell you otherwise (ordered the replacement through Quaiffe and after providing the VIN they advised that my car has a welded crown ring
