More tales from the stealership
Just over a year ago I found out my friend owns a repair shop, so I go to him now. So much stuff is being found that the stealership where I was getting repairs done was trying to screw me worse than I thought I was getting. I believe I posted before about how they were saying that I had a hole somewhere in my exhaust system, but they would have to replace the entire thing for about $3000. (That would be a "no"... Got it welded for free thanks)
So anyway, here's the newest things that were found...and it goes back to a year and a half ago when I had a tune up done around 100,000 miles. I bought MSD wires for them to put on when they changed my spark plugs. Well the other night I went to go to the gym and my car had no acceleration and was extremely jumpy. I took it to my friend's shop and they found that the MSD wires were put on wrong and laid across the engine block, which ended up melting them (lucky there was no fire). A couple of the spark plugs weren't even close to the required spec and were completely fried. Two other spark plugs were only hand-tightened so they werent even fully in properly.... And then i needed to replace my coil pack because of all of it.
SOOO frustrating!!! And that was another $800 that I really didnt have to spend (i know that sounds a bit expensive but the shop specializes in Mercedes...would rather pay a bit more to someone i trust).
