Default $6500 to remove a pebble from a sunroof track...

Damn Mercedes dealers!
See the story & hidden video here:
http://www.wisebread.com/6500-repair...om-a-moon-roof

Basically, a pebble got jamed in the sunroof making it inoperable. The owner took the car (which was just recently off warranty) down to the dealership to have it looked into. They said the whole sunroof unit was dead, and needed reaplacing - $6500 worth.
So he left, and took the car to a shop down the street. They poked around a bit and found and took the pebble out for him. The curious thing was supposed to be how the pebble even managed to get where it was in the sunroof. So he went back to the MB dealership and raised hell.
