They charged you an hour labor, plus parts . Oil changes used to cost 120$ at Maranello about a year back.

At the end, I still save a bit of money. Is that wrong ?

I don't see what I do for a living has to do with this thread's topic ? I wonder.
Wondering if you sell a service or similar where people don't buy product from you , just the service......cherry picking. Rocco is probably trying to avoid the "that as#hole at RMP won't even...." post on forums etc. To each his own . Guess I was wrong.

I would. Then I know everything is done correctly and if not we know who is responsible. I went to one of those hurry lube places a few years ago trying to save some dough/ time and the guy cross threaded plug on my oil pan. Cost me a new pan on my next visit to dealer. Lesson learned.....go to ONE place for service. I would either do it all myself or get someone to do it all. My point is what is $80 every 6-12 months? Probably spill that much on Friday & Saturday nights .........
