Just got a quote from EAS of $875 to install these items. Seems like a great deal after the $2K quote from HG Motorsports. What kind of turnaround time can I expect for the springs & exhaust install from EAS?
  • Akrapovic Exhaust
  • H&R Springs
  • GruppeM Carbon Intake
  • M Performance Steering Wheel
  • 3D Design Carbon Diffuser
  • 3D Design Carbon Front Spoiler
  • Door Handles w/ Flat Black Strip
  • Frozen Black M5 Emblem
  • Frozen White Front Reflectors
  • Macht Schnell Spacers (12mm & 10mm)

I need to move to the west coast - $875 seems insane compared to any work done in the DC area.

Wow thats one hell of a deal, springs and exhaust should probably take about 6-7 hours total.

must have. looks great and gives you better grip as well. Alcantara is sporty, durable and comfy plus the red stripe on the top is cool.. also the carbon insert is remarkable..
why do you paint the front carbon lip ? or just i am confused..

The M wheel I got is a bit different then what you're describing. Here's a picture of the one I have.

The paint on the carbon front spoiler is a clear paint that will take the shine off.
