      aired up at home.

      aired out at school.

      aired up at school.

      aired out at work.

      Oh and cancelled Sirius because they charged me $50. They said they didn't have the 6 months for $25 that some are getting so I'll just wait a few days for their call.

      I have two 20% off coupons for service.

      Too bad I do everything myself, minus alignments. String and a protractor, no thanks.

      Wash and deep interior clean yesterday. Needed it badly after about 5k in road trips this winter.

      Pulled BLQs out of storage, cleaned, touched up paint, getting ready to mount.

      Today - clay bar, wax, touch up paint, install Hawk HPS pads, mount BLQs. Got to get her looking pretty again...

      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."
