Where to get DPs Installed? (Tampa Bay/Sarasota Area)

Just purchased a set of VRSF DPs. Still debating whether or not I want to bother with the install. I am short on time, so I am considering just having a shop do it.

Shop reccomendations? What would be ballpark for labor install on these? Thanks.

I had mine done at Steele automotive in Tampa close to Kennedy / Howard intersection. He does all of my non dealer work and I think it was around $200 if I'm not mistaking.

The owner used to be at Bert Smith BMW.

I saw a post from MPoweredAuto. New site vendor(?) and has a new shop in the Miami area. He has a thread open, talking about special sales on parts and labor because of the grand opening. I'd PM him.
