Spring Install in Charlotte, NC

Does anyone know of a place near Charlotte, NC that can provide a good price to install lowering springs on a 2012 550i? I was quoted $690 for labor and alignment (that does not include springs). I thought that seemed a little high for labor and alignment. Any input would be appreciated.

I paid $600 in labor and parts and another $120 for alignment for my H&R install about 2 weeks ago at my dealer. Was quoted a sub $500 price by a local shop (non BMW) which does general auto work, detail, and such but decided to go ahead and stick with the dealership since it was a brand new vehicle and wasn't sure if the local shop would have the right equipment and knowledge of the F10 to do the job correctly.

I know its just springs but if they messed something up...it would cost me much more than the $200 price delta to get it fixed by BMW.
