I'd be in for the GB if you where doing an Austin location. It would save me $150 from the dealership

Yeah, this is gonna be difficult. I'd need to get up at 5am to make it to Grapevine by 8, then somehow get the kid to school across town by 8:30/work at 9-ish.

For some reason I assumed this would be happening on a weekend. I'll see what I can do, though.

Alex, Just out of curiosity. Why dont we have some cars scheduled at 8, and than have second car show up no later than 10, since you cant work on 2 cars at a time anyway

......Wooohooo so close now! I am excited

Many thanks to Alex for this, the change in idle quality is just stupid; you can't even really tell it's running now. General around town driving on the way home felt much smoother too.

Alex is a super nice guy and the experience was perfect and painless, even with a rental car thrown in. Let's fill up these slots and make his trip worth it!

Here's a couple of pictures he shot for me (click for full-size); mine is just over 83k miles and had never been cleaned.
