Exhaust Shop / Header Install????

Hello I live in the Tampa Bay area and recently purchased an 06 M5. I am going to go with Ryan's decatted oem headers but I need to find a shop that has experience and wont try to rip me off and quote me 2k for labor. Anyone know of a shop that has worked with M5's and can replace the headers for an actual reasonable price??? I'm willing to drive a little if its worth it

I haven't found many shops around, but I keep hearing of one in Tampa that is supposedly good.

I'm actually doing my headers (de-cat myself) now, finished the second set today.
(also doing bearings/vanos line)

I already have my front axle dropped, so removing the headers was actually super easy, all the bolts are easy to get to, it comes right off, and down without a fight. I don't know however, how difficult it would be with the front axle assembly still on the car. It might even be impossible, which would mean you have to drop the front axle, which means gotta support the engine, which means removing the plenums....
