Re: [T3] Bagging on technicians

Id rather pay a top level tech $100 for an hour of their time to fix my car
than an average tech $20 for 5 hours to do the same thing and have the car
butchered.  It amazes me how many bad mechanics are out there... even with
new cars being so training sensitive.  The garage I take mine to for the few
things I cant do has good mechanics that would have no trouble fixing my FI
if I gave them the Manual and parts they needed.
