Thanks! That's very reasonable. Though add a bit to that figure for my purposes since I'm not as advanced a DIYer

A friend of mine paid $14,000 (including parts) to have the same things done professionally. Actually, he had less things done.

Thumbs down Custom M5

Impressive list of updates!

You could open-up a shop and clients would be rushing in to customize their rides.

Did you do all these set-ups with ncs expert ?
