Just ordered a set of Eibach springs (AWD GT2 if it matters...) Question is should I have a dealer install the kit or is there a shop in the area that you prefer?

Any shop like Firestone can install it fairly cheap. There's no need to pay dealer rates.

Following for good indy shops in the NW Burbs. I'm in 60060. I've learned from BMW ownership learning some DIY and having a great indy shop is HUGE.

I asked my local Firestone if they could install springs while I was having my winter tires put on, they said no because it's not an OEM part.

My experience with firestone has always been bad. While yes they can do stuff, they are blunt instruments. There are always better solutions.

SAME! I called Ben at 7th Gear from the BMW Motorwerks service waiting room more times than I can count...

Ben is great. Maybe he'll start learning the Stinger. I told my guy, eFab Motorsports, to start reading up on the Stinger.

Not yet, likely waiting until the planet thaws in the spring to make any changes anyway...
