    Ordered AP headers and Kline exhaust for my '06 430 spider. Can any owners here from the Chicagoland area recommend a good installation shop? Thanks in advance!

    I would second that. Continental Autosports and Lake Forest Sportscars have provided excellent quality work for me.

    Timo’s Autohouse. I was very happy with their work and the reasonable billing.
    I had them install Capristo Headers/Brackets, full service all fluids changed, new Battery and Tires.

    Thanks for all the advice, guys. However, I'm a bit hesitant to go to the dealers because I know they'll charge an arm and a leg on labor. Someone mentioned that one owner had a muffler replaced by his local Ferrari dealer and was charged $3,500 for labor alone! That's just insane!

    Supposedly the best Chicagoland specialist exhaust shop - bar none - is One Stop Muffler & Brake in East Chicago, IN. Never mind the unassuming name and rough location, I’ve met countless high-end car owners, particularly among the German and Tuner crowd, who swear by his genius. I spoke to him about fabricating a custom exhaust for my 308, and he wanted $200 for labor if we used my components, or $500 for soup to nuts. Try that route, I think Tom was his name.

    Best exotic independent is B-ROGUE Built (Carol Stream/Hanover Park). He has an F430 there for clutch right now, and works primarily on Lambos, Audi R8s, and Ferraris. Great guys too. Built me a full titanium straight pipe setup for my Gallardo and have installed exhausts on most Huracans/Aventadors running around Chicago.

    Call Brandon: 630-890-1795 -- Tell him Alex with the Orange Gallardo sent you.

    Anyone used "One Stop Muffler & Brake in East Chicago, IN" or some one else in the area? I am interested in a custom exhaust too...for the price range of several hundred dollars (for Mondial 8).

    What about Autosprint in the city? They seem to be Italian car-centric. Or, what about the guys on Lincoln Ave, just north of Fullerton? They have a 308 and a 360 (?) in there now.
