Anyone know of a shop that can install coil overs around wine country?
And what pricing should I expect so I don't get BS.

Not I, but $200-300 install sounds about right, $200 is awesome.

Yeah I thought that range sounds appropriate. Only place I know around here is Rev. Auto & Collision and they quoted me at 450+.

Coming from Vallejo, I wouldn't mind the drive down to Sonic MS in Santa Clara, FFTEC in Union City, Performance Technique in Pleasonton or Speed Element in San Jose, you'll know where you can meet and see quality shops.

Have you had experiences with those shops? If so, which one(s) you think are the best in what they do?

All of those are they best at what they do. It's just your choice on where you want to go.

SpeedElement in San Jose gets my vote . They were located in Fremont before they moved (in case you want to Yelp them). I was looking for quotes from other shops in the SJ area and ended up at SE.

Anyone with a 2009 e90 / 91 / 92 want to sell their sirius module?

Hi,

I'm in the south bay and I've been looking for a sirius module. I've checked the for sale boards for months but no luck - so I'm trying a different route:

Any folks in NCal have a sirius unit in their car that they're not using? Want to sell it to me? I'm driving quite a bit these days and need something to listen to. I'll meet you somewhere in the bay, do all the work, and make it very easy.

PM me or let me know if you're interested in selling. I'll pay $$$.

Thanks!

Fred

Thanks for the quick response! I just got burned buying the wrong part (thankfully for much less) so I'm trying to find something from an '08 or '09 car so I can be reasonably sure that it will work.

SpeedElement is great place to go. Anytime I need anything installed, I go straight to them. I'm actually getting all my stuff installed there sometime next week.
