shops SUCK man,

i just picked up mommy's urban assault vehicle (suburban) from the body shop today. someone ran into the left passenger door, and left big dent. so i go to pick it up and the dude was like, "yea we had a problem with the door handle so we had to change that too" at which point i responded "i'm sorry, i have the white suburban :::while pointing to it::::, the door handle was fine before we brought it to the shop". so then he was like "well we have a new employee here and this was his 2nd car he has worked on"... while pissed, i was like "yea, sucks that it has to come out of your pocket and not mine" and to my suprise he was like "yea, i see your point" and didn't charge extra for the doorhandle. he was tryin to get some money outuv money but i held my ground. damn body shops.

So you can use that yellow lamin-x on foglights? It won't melt it? Seriously I want my fogs yellow but thought it was a plastic peice that fits over them.

i only paid $20 for my bulk pack enough to do two sets of fogs. i gave the other piece to my bro for his lights. are the yellow more expensive? also i don't think this film can be found at stores and if it is its not the same. the laminx also provides chip protection.

I paid $250 for my fogs on my 8th gen, also saved myself $300+ by installing them myself. I would post pics but I can't.

well, gearbox, i have good news for you. here in the future we now have time machines. i had the choice of buying a Xenon i43 hovercar or a timemachine. i chose the hovercar. once i save enough money i'll buy a time machine and let you borrow it so you can get your money back.

well my install was supposed to be 65 but they said they would have to do the bumper cutting. i was gonna cut it myself and have them install but i don't really have time. so they will do it all for me tomorrow for 110.
the dude didn't know how to get my bumper off. if i have to help them im gonna want a cheaper price. and ill check all my **** to make sure nothing is broke too. you know, just in case

yea i believe it. its stupid. bumper install is 10 minutes. its cause the automotive standard gives times for what any average slow *** mechanic can do. fogs are timed at 2.5 hours. thats what honda told me. but the shop guys told me an hour. but then the bumper cutting is like 1.5 hours. but thats crap anyway too. there is a book about this stuff. like how many hours does X job take.

ok updates
so i walk in at 9 am like my appoitment said. i get there and these guys come out and tell me to bring the fogs in.
so i do, they go to the back, come back out and say itll be 250 for all the "custom" work. omgwtfbbq.
i told them to give me back my screws, which they don't give them all back from yesterday. and i leave.
first it was 65
then it was 110 and now 250. im going to talk to their boss. email him and tell him this is bad business. and im putting these people under the blacklist for bad shops.
