STL Shop To Do CDV Delete - OR Fellow Member To Help Out In The STL Area

Hey guys,

Just as the title states, I'm trying to find a shop in the STL area that you would recommend to perform a CDV delete (swap out for the aftermarket one). OR....if someone in the STL area has done this and wouldn't mind helping me out that would work as well.

Thanks!

I'd contact Tom Bradley to see if he can help you out. I'd offer my help, but I'm in StL sparingly on the occasional weekend and I haven't done the CDV removal myself, so I wouldn't feel comfortable using someone else's 1er as a guinea pig!

Too bad you are not in Michigan or I could help you. It is an easy swap and only takes about 45 min. - most of the time is spent jacking the car up and removing the skid panel.

Thanks for the offer. I actually just ended up having a shop do it. The difference is night and day. Best mod so far for me.

I ended up going to Bimmers R Us on Kingshighway, north of Chippewa. Here's the site:

http://www.bimmersrus.com/

The main service guy is very knowledgeable. Car was out in about an hour.

Bavarian (http://www.bavarianstl.com/) would also be a good place, and I prefer the owners/management there over BimmersRUs for a number of reasons. It's right at the corner of hwy 141 and Manchester Rd.

Thanks guys, would you say they're competent for something like AR dp's? FMIC is coming first in the near future but I'll do that myself, the dp's just look like hell after watching my friend do the Berk on his N55.

I bet either place would be able to do that, but since Kamal has extended experience with the Bavarian shop I would probably try them first.

Joe, Paul, and I have done the DP install a few times between us. It's bad, but not THAT bad if we can get access to a lift. I would get a quote on the install and if it's too pricey... then consider DIY. Another guy to contact is Tom Bradley, who runs a shop close to the airport... I'd give him a call and get a price from him as well, he's the type of guy that'll let you watch over the install and apparently doesn't charge much.
