Shops to do coilover install in Saint Pete / Tampa area?

I'm running into a bit of an issue where my indy shops won't install customer provided parts, but they don't sell any kind of coilovers / springs. My wife and I are just down in this area for the year, so I'm hesitant to buy an air compressor and impact gun for this one job.

Anybody know of anyone in the area that will install either coilovers or some Dinan springs? It's on a brand new 320i no-line. I just installed some 437M Reps and Hankook V12s so the fender gap is obviously killing me!

Anybody?

This shop works on race and high end sports cars. They are not cheap but can corner balance and do a great job.

Reasonable rate ($110 hour iirc), good people and Dinan Dealer.

Downtown St Petersburg

Heard good things about Midnight Tuning as well.

I've heard good things about Midnite and Tuning Dynamics. I had my alignment done today at Advance Performance who also does alignments for cars with aftermarket suspensions. I'm running KW Clubsport coilovers.

Thanks everyone! A few options to consider for sure. I have begged Tuning Dynamics to take my money for a couple of days with no return call to set up an appointment, only "we'll call to you in the morning". They seem to be slammed.

I'll give the others a shout here soon. Looks like I may have to put another N52 in my 128i commuter, so these shops may be a good resource for that project too.

Thanks again!
