Just had this done $624 total. 6 hours labor, parts were <$50. Doubt they removed the gas tank also.

Hardest part is scraping/removing undercoating which most shops can hand off to the underling low man shop boy. Then the welder will come in and do the plates which is less than an hour. I'm sure you could save some bucks$ if you removed the undercoating yourself.

FYI, I replaced mine because one of them failed on track. Luckily I heard the clunking and pulled off before the whole thing let loose which would have caused a wild ride as in this failure (yes can happen in E46 too).
