NWS 97 M3 Repair Cost!?

SO JUST MY LUCK CAR DID NOT PASS INSPECTION...

FAILED DUE TO
  • NO AMBER FRONT BLINKERS
  • NO AMBER FRONT SIDEMARKERS
  • LEFT PLATE LIGHT OUT
  • TINT OR REAR WINDOW TOO DARK
  • AIR BAG LIGHT IS ON
  • VEHICLE TOO LOW TO GROUND
  • LEFT AND RIGHT LOWER BALL JOINTS HAVE PLAY (RECHECK)
  • NO WATER FOR WINDSHIELD COMES OUT
  • EXHAUST LEAK
  • BOTH REAR TIRES WORN OUT
  • RH FOG LAMP MISSING
  • LH FOG LAMP CRACKED

ESTIMATE OF REPAIRS???? WOULD YOU CONSIDER THIS MAJOR OR MINOR?
FYI MASSACHUSETTS SUCKS!

No problem.....I would guess anywhere between $1,600 to $2,000 depending on where you bring it.....also if you are somewhat handy, you probably can pull off the bulb replacement, lower control arms (ball joints), washer pump, fogs & tint.......

note: if you do find a shop @ roughly $80.00 an hr....make sure you purchase the parts yourself......

johnny,
