I don't do drugs, I am drugs.
Yeah i understand where the dealership comes in on that price. I had a similar quote at the dealership around my house. But you have to think too because dealer oe parts are way more expensive plus the time it takes to get the job done. Its easily a 5-6 hour job and theres only 1 tech working on the car, i know because my friend used to work at Audi. And after you add it all up thats about right. They also dont charge per hour either, thats the cost of a job, so if a tech takes extra long do it because something breaks or whatever, they dont get paid more, not to mention all the parts and labor are warrantied. It wouldnt be so bad if you could bring them your own parts because that would save you at least a couple hundred bucks.
