whats everyone paying to get H&R lowering springs installation labor cost?

I ordered a set of lowering springs, and want to get ahead and see what everyone is paying for the installation cost, so I wont get robbed by some installers..

Thanks!

UPDATED: F90 M5 H&R Lowering springs installed, BLOX 15mm front and 10mm rear spacers installed.

I'd say $300-$600 is a fair range.

Depends where you are located. I heard the install is a pain. The entire upper deck in the cabin needs to be removed to access the struts. I was quoted 750 but I live in a high cost area

I hear you. That's why I said it's a fair range. I know people that paid over $800 but I wouldn't personally pay that. Nor would I pay too little out of fear that they don't know what they're doing.

I'm involved with installing new springs now, and the front was straight forward. Slightly more difficult than the F10 because of the driven front wheels. But the rear is a definite pain in the butt! The little nit picky fasteners and wiring that have to be released and moved before you can remove the sound deadening from the package tray is tedious. I have the time so don't mind so much, but for those of you still working, pay to have it done. Those figures quoted seem very worth it to me, even to the $800 range. I am doing a HAS system which is a little more work, but still those charges seem reasonable. I don't think it's a matter of knowing what you're doing, it isn't difficult. It's that they take the time to reroute and reattach everything in the way it should be. A shop that pays attention to detail would be preferred.

thanks guys. got it done today, and installer sent me photos of how much interior has to come off, it was crazy.

all in all, my price fall right in the "fair" range and I am more then happy of the outcome. I went with H&R F90 M5 specific lowering springs, because I know H&R spent their time and money on R&D. To each their own, I love how it looks, can not wait to put me 15/10 spacers!

On the F90 hnr springs, lokks like the rear has a wider gap then the OEM competition springs and that the front is lower than the comp,oem springs ( wich is a good thing)
Question: on a comp model, can we just remplace the front springs with hnr spring or I am saying silly shit here

Thanxs

Why doing mix and match when the M550 spring gives you a perfect height already.

Don't forget springs will settle after about 2 weeks on the car and come down some more and the ride will get smoother
