Houston H&R install question

It looks like quite a few Houston members have done the install. If you all don't mind sharing (a) name of shop (b) how much you paid and (c) how satisfied are you with the work.

I want to do the springs and spacer but my regular shop has not done a F10 yet and with all the panels in the trunk to be removed, I do not want to be the guinea pig.

Motorwerks of houston charges $600 to install springs. Dont know how much for exhaust. They do good work as I have been there a couple of times and know a few people who have been there. They are a trusted work shop.

Thanks for your input Boots. I've been there before for my Porsche previously. Have they done the springs on a F10 yet do you know?

I think they did member mcvaughns car if I'm not mistaken. They either did his akrapovic exhaust or the Hr drop. I will find out and let you know.

Got h&r and akrapovic installed at motorweks and it was $1000 for both out the door after tax etc. they charged 6 hours labor for the spring install.

Waaaaaay too expensive but options are limited in Houston. FYI, this is double what I would have paid if I still lived in Orange County.

That being said, motorweks does good work and I'd use them again.

Hey boots & avi8tir, were either of you driving down Fannin near Walker yesterday (1/9) at 4:30ish? I saw an AW M5 with blacked out grilles/gills and the car sounded like it had a mean exhaust.

I would love to see and hear both of your cars, I'm trying to decide on an exhaust for mine.

Your more than welcome to take a ride also and get behind the wheel. I'm leaving tomorrow to work offshore for a couple weeks and when I return we can get together. Also, when I return, I will go ahead and order the Hr springs and get them installed. Hopefully all of us can get together for photo shoot and perhaps a ride around town. There are so many exhaust out there and they all are good. Choose the best one for you.
