Default local subframe reinforcement in Los Angeles?

Looking for a reputable person/shop to take my semi(new to me) baby to and get the subframe reinforced. I know of EAS, however not sure how much they charge. What's a fair price for a job like this out the door anyways?

I've posted this in the Pacific section.
I am having Minicorsa in North Hollywood do mine within the month. They've done many and had the best price - $880 for labor and alignment (not including parts). I will supply the plates ($150), bushings ($250 from AKG), and CSB/guibo while they are in there.

If you inquire, let Danny know that I sent ya.

Sounds like a solid option, I too planned on supplying all those parts, was just looking for a good shot to do the heavy lifting as I have no access to a garage in my current living situation. Thanks for the help!

Cool, good luck. They are also replacing my diff mounting bolts with the updated versions and installing Rogue rear spring perches at the same time (no charge of course, labor is unchanged while it's all disassembled) but it seems like they know what they're doing.

Hey, I know this thread hasn't been posted on in a while, but I just bought an 02 M3 Coupe and was wondering where you ended up getting your reinforcement done and were you happy with results?

Lang Racing in irvine.

Andrew rules, fair price, fantastic communication and they even send you before and after pics of the work on your car. Plus Lifetime Warranty, so if anything cracks again you're covered. Can't beat that

you got Lang racing, Racewerkz and other places there. Racewerkz quoted me 2.5k including all bushings replaced and whatever else that can be done when the subframe is off.

Has anybody had their work done at EAS? (European Auto Source) They quoted me only $1250 not including bushings which doesn't matter to me as the previous owner put new ones in 5k miles ago.
