    Update on the silicone spray maintenance on the window guides:
    The windows still move smoothly with no noises since I lubricated the guides almost 5 months ago. I will be doing this every 6 months...

    It sounds like the cheaper guy is an idiot. Take that with a grain of salt; he should have said something about replacing both shocks instead of just one, but he seems to be too agreeable just to get...

    You get to reap the benefits of "been there done that" with regards to having to pick what to fix. I know your pain. lol

    Doing the mounts is an absolute no brainer if the shocks are being replaced anyway. Shock mounts are cheap and could save you from having to do the work again soon anyway to replace the mounts, as...

    You seem to be very concerned about a small (in the grand scheme of things) cost difference, so it sounds like you'd be more after what you'd get the most value from. Considering the cheaper guy...

    That shock is done. Definitely replace the rear left and right shocks.

    A good sport-suspension shock should not bounce at all when pushed down, and it shouldn't be that easy to push down on it....

    Definitely not a place I would ever go for service. They don't get paid enough to give a crap about your car so the quality of work is a big wildcard.

    They're not blue, they're a crisp white from what I've seen in person.

    Ah. Then that is definitely too expensive. It's odd that a shop would quote you a single shock as standard practice is to replace them in pairs.

    $720 sounds like a total ripoff.

    I'm curious why you think it's a major ripoff. It sounds pretty spot-on to me.

    Some loose math:

    Let's say their cost is lower than $64 per shock so for this example, they charge $64 per...

    That price sounds about right for a pair of rear Sachs shocks. Just make sure they don't use a cheapo shitty brand.

    For anyone wondering, an M54 fits the back of the touring just fine.
    I've always wanted a rear-engined touring.
