Bummer - Shops are a rip off some times! Hope you get it sorted though.

Now this is sad:

These are my logos... but I have no Mini to put them on.

So I finally get ahold of the dealer yesterday. On Monday they were all set to yank the head. But they finally got someone in there with some sense and they are taking a few steps back... like replacing the plug wires!!!! They never did that after the thing blew that plug out. Hmmm... could there be plug wire damage that could cause a miss? DUH!!!! But let's just yank the head!

So today they are going to try some "Easy" stuff first. Man, if I had the tools and the time I would just do it all myself! So frustrating.

That blows. Are you rocking a loaner car? I can't belive how much time it's taking them to fix your car.
