Brother's 325Xi (e46) needs a driver's front axle (CV) - good shop in Brooklyn?

So this car has been passed around my family for a few years and currently my brother has it in brooklyn. He went to get it inspected (NYS) and it failed for a bad CV (torn boot->no grease). I found the part for $99 but we need a good shop to install it, the rando place he brought it wants $800 for this work, thanks for no thanks.

Any suggestions?

Its a 2005 325Xi.

Seal puller and axle pusher and you can do this in a drive way. Maybe borrow it from Advance or Pep Boys? New boot or whole new complete shaft?

No driveway and he doesn't have any tools there.

Is there a split boot available for that car? Those you can do with no tools. Pack with grease, fit boot, good to go. Unless the CV itself is bad.

No idea how long its been ripped/empty though. There wasn't any vibes when I drove it from Philly to Long Island 2 weeks ago, but who knows.
