    Seems outrageous. For someone who knows what they are doing should not be more than a 2-3 hour job.

    Anyone paid to have it done, i think 1,000 is ridiculous too! Just want to make a point to people ripping fellow enthusiests off!

    It's about 3 hours labor...most of which is removing the front bumper and a few things behind it, followed by putting it back together. The pinning itself might be the fastest part of the job. $1000 is way too much. Depending on the hourly labor charges in your area, I'd say $250-$375 is more fair, plus the price of the pin kit.

    The job is more like 6+ hrs from start to finish but yes $1,000 is on the high side..(including changing the lower pulley)

    I posted a DIY in my build thread. 2 hours total with the right tools which I'm willing to loan out.

    Do it yourself!!!

    I also did it, with the right tools (90 deg drill, kit, etc) I did my A8 Charger without removing the front end or draining any fluids, I could do it in 2-3 hrs if I had to do it again. See jvm728 's build

    1000 bucks is high

    Wow, I wish our labor rates were $40 an hour. They're $100-$125/hour on Long Island.

    Well I cant just drive to you, or hhp, or bwoody, Metco, or any of the amazing great vendors I didn't mention, or see topcat or drbuick or any of the amazing members here do their things (way too many to mention) all of which are so cool, so I am equally jealous goingsolo2 :)

    took the rad fan housing out from the bottom and removed lower rad support to create room for the 90 deg drill
