Phoenix, AZ help!

been looking for a shop to install some lowering springs on my car for a reasonable price. Anyone know of a good shop/mechanic? so far ive called around and best deal i can find is $450 out the door with alignment; which isnt bad, but i still feel like its a bit pricey. dont want to do it myself but its not out of the question. Any help is appreciated!

AZ Euros in Mesa, AZ! I've taken my last 6-8 cars to Christian at AZ Euros. The first car he started modding for me was a complete Dinan Stage 3 E36 M3. As I type this, I'm on a family vacation in the Philippines with my wife. My car is sitting at AZ Euros getting a BM3 tune, OBD Agent Device, VMR wheels, Michelin PS4 tires, Hi flo cat, fmic, and chargepipes installed. The current build is on a 2015 335i M-sport.
He's done work on my previous Audi S4, E46 M3, Stage 3 Golf R, E92 335i, 987.2 Boxster, etc...
Great guy, reputable shop, not overly pricey (think Dynocomp), and clean/reliable work.
Let him know Emil sent you, you're essentially guaranteed good work at a reasonable cost.
You cant go wrong here...

$450 with alignment seems pretty good. 3-3.5 hours of labor, plus ~$75-80 for the alignment.

I don't think that seems to far out of wack, especially if you want it done right.

How long do you think it would take you to do on your own?

I had access to a rack and air tools when I installed my KW's and it still took me a full morning to disassemble and install everything.

Did my own springs ($250) and for a first time it took me roughly 3-4 hours taking my time. The rears were about 30 minutes start to finish, the front took the lion share. That said, $450 is very reasonable if you are paying standard shop rates. I am not sure I trust my car with anyone offering discount hourly rates that I cant find a history of customers from. Maybe call AZ Euros and get a competitive quote?

I am guessing you initially called Parts Score?
