Just got my H&R Sport Springs...

My springs came in the mail today, so pumped. Cant wait to have them installed. Im in Germany and i dont know any good car shops, so most likely they will be installed by the dealer. What do you think they wil charge to install?

Probably an arm and a leg, standard dealer labour rates. I don't think the dealer will touch aftermarket parts and installation anyway.

Do NOT forget to get an alignment done after the springs are installed.
It's not worth penny pinching as it will affect the handling and tire wear.

Do you have the stock sport suspension or M adaptive?
Which HR springs did you get?
Do you know their spring rate?

Let us know how you like the new springs.

If you cant find someone (which, in that area I would find highly unlikely), I know a guy here in Belgium that can do it in a couple of hours for 250€. Only works on BMW and put OEM sport springs on my M Adaptive xdrive with no problems. Highly recommended mechanic.

G-Power is close to Augsburg, Hamann is near Ulm and I know some shops in Stuttgart or in K-town.
