The spring pads should vary between 1/8" (pad #1) to about 1" for the pad #5. I don't know about labor costs; naturally, it will vary between shops.

I believe Ronal is the OEM supplier for the 17" rims. My non-sport E430 had 17x7.5" OEM wheels made by Ronal.

However, Ronal is also the supplier for Brabus as well.
