Recommend me a shop?

I'm thinking about doing some suspension upgrades (some M3 parts, new springs/shocks). Can anyone recommend me a good shop in the DFW area to have this stuff installed? Independent mechanics are ok too.

Do you mind me asking what suspension parts you plan on installing?

Thinking about doing the BMW PS and the M3 rear subframe bushings, M3 front sway. I don't really track the car but the way the rear end sways and pogo's is not confidence inspiring.

if you don't mind, would you pm or post the price they quote/charge for the install?

Yeah, I'll do my best. Classic BMW quoted me 8.5 hrs for the PS install. The M3 stuff they refused to do. So at minimum you'll have 8.5hrs x Stett's hourly price.

His PM box is full and lately he hasn't been responding to anyone. I'm going to try and find another BMW certified mechanic that does work on the side, maybe we can get a group buy discount
