Automotive shops will always be crooks. Get to know well good friend or cousin who is auto tech so you won't be rip off.EnriqueC. said:Why so much difference i wonder??
Because Dealership = Stealership. There is nothing more to say about it. You don't need the dealer to rip you off on stuff like that. Another example: EGR Pipe clean. Dealer wants $330 I did it for a mere $20 (in carb and choke cleaner and 2 gaskets) and it wasn't hard. I got my TB/WP done with a guy I really trust for $550 (but I was stupid and didn't use OEM parts like I should have but I still used good parts, actually they were almost the same price). But if I had to do it again, I would have paid the guys at the Specialty Honda/Acura Shop $650 and got everything done. They did my friends 99 Accord V6 for $650 with a tranny service.EnriqueC. said:Why so much difference i wonder??
