Spring installation - Can you recommend a garage?

5 posts in this topic

I have a set of Eibach pro springs which I would like to get fitted to my F10, I wanted to know if you know of a repuable shop or person who can fit srpings to my car, I'm location close to Croydon, surrey so around this area would be ideal.

 

thanks

Looking at ISTA it would be easier diy than doing it in the E60.

 

E60 diy.

 

The F10 shock top mount is under the rear speaker grill, prise that out, remove speaker and there is the 3 top mount bolts. Bottom bolt is done up much tighter on the F10 than E60 though.

 

BMW replaced one of my F10 rear springs under warranty due to breakage.

I've a garage who's fitting my offside broken spring for £40 (My parts)

Off topic but It's shocking that such shyte material is used on these springs. Mine has only done 65K btw

£40 that's cheap. I wouldn't complain at those Labour rates.

 

I suppose up on a lifting table it shouldn't take that long. An hour?

 

Took me longer......

He did say an hour but going by my previous experience with him, I'd be looking at 2.

Bigshout, it's a bit of trek for you from Croydon since this is in Hayes.
