WHeel Power just quoted me $325 to install the RE Octane SSk. That seems way to freakin' high!! Anyone have know of a better place in the LA area that would do it cheaper??

is that parts and labor or just labor?

1) if its just labor.. it way expensive... most places and most people iknow calls for 1.5 hours

2) if its parts and labor its just about on the dot.. a buddy on the board got it installed for 300 parts and labor

good luck :thumbup:

I did it myself just to avoid that kind of unneccessary cost. I had to buy a set of screwdrivers, jackstands, and a case of beer(cost for use of buddies garage:thumbup: ) which was way less than $200. Easy install to do on your own. There isnt much to mess you up on the way, just follow the instructions from the Ho-to section

I paid $340 for it on my M3 and it was done by RE themselves in NJ. Also paid $40 more for stiffer tranny mounts. If you have never experienced it, it is incredible. No matter what you pay, you will love it. Took Ben about an hour but remember that he invented it.

I installed mine and probably wouldn't do it again. The most difficult part of the process was installing the WSR (the clip at the tranny is a beyotch to install). SSKs w/o a WSR are a breeze to install.

That's the worst of it though.... shifts feel crisp and precise.
