1100$ to install down pipe and Dinan quad axle back exhaust

Got a quote for $1100 to install my down pipe and Dinan axle back quad exhaust on m340i... sounds high. Thoughts?

As I said in your other post, that is an insanely high quote...RUN somewhere else.

That's insane it's takes about 2-3 hours for the whole job with a rack, do it yourself and take your time won't be more than half a day

I was quoted $220 for the Dinan install from a very reputable shop out here. Probably 2 hours max. $2000 out the door for the exhaust and install. Your quote seems extremely high. Add 3 hours max for the downpipe and I would still be at half your install labor cost.

Sounds Iike it's a shop that hasn't done something like this before or doesn't usually work on new BMWs. Run.

Same here, just under $2k installed (dinan exhaust only)

Plenty of really nice cars at their shop. Lamborghini bentleys.. they are just trying to gouge me. Called a different shop that I used to go to and they said 350 for downpipe and 250 for exhaust. That sounds about right.

Oh well their labor rates are probably high and the number of hours inflated because they are used to lambo and Bentley owners
