Service time question

Just wondering for a ballpark figure how long it should take to replace the MAF, Digital Climate control unit and switch steering wheels? I have no clue on this stuff so I'd figure I'd ask where I know people will.

Thanks

Depending on the car, MAF 2-10 minutes, Digital climate control ~20 minutes, steering wheel, not sure but don't see it taking more than 30 minutes.

I think he is asking for Shop rates.

Those items are really easy to replace! Esp. The MAF.
You should consider doing it yourself.

I know it's true I should but I succcck at this stuff and the lack of confidence makes me nervous around my car, hell I couldn't even do my ZKW install. I'm building my own guitar and can work on them but am retarded on the car..... Terrible I know but I need to get an E30 again and start working on stuff there to learn.

Figured if a shop could pull it off in under an hour I'm happy taking it to one of our sponsors

Haha That is really cool. I think Hamilton dudes that have swaped their E36 to M E36 are ****ers one of a kind. They know these cars inside out.
