Carbon build up on n55 is not as bad as the n54 engines but some say around 50k miles

Sto being a cheap ass bro, quality over quantity anyway IMO. Oh and by the way, "Machinic" is spelt Mechanic, maybe you should learn english before you go bash people
Are you smashing this "Mechanic" ? Because u got really defensive there bud.

So people should just take your word for it and pay indy prices for something to get done in a driveway?? Maybe if he adjusted price to like $300 it might make sense but whatever.

I'm not sure why you are making assumption regarding this since I made no reference of the person and his shop in my post

If he was insured, you would have defended him and said so......you just confirmed my assumption.

Funny your assumption is wrong either way and making false accusations without any proof makes your comments laughable. If any members here interested you can still pm me and i will give any info of his shop
