      I just called another dealer and was quoted $525+ tax for the DSG service. I can buy the kit from ECS and almost two extra fluid/filters (will last me til 120K) for that price.

      Are these people even semi serious?

      just to be clear. youre ONLY asking for dsg service, not 40k right?

      Correct. I asked him that twice, I said, "you know I'm only asking for the transmission service, right?"
      His response: "Yes, $525 for the transmission service of fluid and filter change."

      Even if you tell them to stop they will say, sorry sir we have no control of the automatic calling system.

      Met with BullittTDI today during my lunch break for VAGCOM scanning and some code to add.

      Gave him a taste of Unitronic Stage 2 Tune, and he loves it more than the APR tune.

      I wish there was a place in Texas to get unitronic. Closest place is Colorado I think.
