Recommended local shop for Downpipe Install (not named AutoCouture)

All,

I am looking for a recommendation on a good shop in the tristate area, that is transparent and charges reasonable prices. To be honest, I was hopeful I could make AutoCouture my go-to shop but i have no confidence in transparency from them. When i got a quote to install SS brake lines, they quoted me $600 and my local stealership did the same install for ~$300.

I know a downpipe install is super quick and simple once the car is lifted, so looking for a reasonable and trustworthy place I can go to.

Also, if anyone has had one installed would be great to understand what you paid for it as a reference point

I can recommend Rogue Engineering. They did my VF engineering tune back when it required pulling out the DME. Also, I've heard good things regarding Tyspeed and the owner is a member on the forum.

Also, I go to Thompson BMW in PA, but I'm not sure how the culture is now that the two main M performance SAs have left.

Quick update here. Autocouture reached out to me and they have clarified a miscommunication that happened with the brake lines.

They were extremely mature, courteous, and professional in how they handled this situation and it has given me confidence in them moving forward.

End of day im hopeful their quote for the downpipe is competitive with others!
