I am pretty surprised to hear that someone quoted you 7 hours for ***. Any shop should be able to do it faster than that. I wouldn't think the N54's *** would be much different on how they bolt up. On mine (N55) the only "Overlap" would be the two transmission brace bolts.

********* shouldn't take 7 hours, even for a newbie. It took me 4 hours the first time I did it, and I had no clue what I was doing

Did it in under 3 hours on jack stands including a transmission fluid change. Dunno what they are smoking with 7 hours but I want some.
