wow dealerships are so dumb! a bushing that denies work, what a joke. i went to a dealer by my old house and seriously a kid there took an hour each time to just look up a part number. he would never get it right, i would have to lean over the counter and show him how to use the microfiche right. dealers pay nothing! salesman are commission only and make around $50-$100 minis on each deal, techs are hired out of school or off the street at $8-10 an hr besides one main tech, and parts/service again will hire anyone that wants the low pay. hell my dealer made his 22 year old son in law the service manager and he just came from delivering pizza his whole life!!! you have to check around and find a dealer with people that at least know something. my dealer knows i had 400+ crank hp on my 09 and still gave me about 21k on trade in. they all know me and are friends and i even flashed stage 1 in the parking lot at 5 miles with everyone watching how to do it. you just have to find the mod friendly one's i guess because anyone with half a brain knows what mods you can do on these cars. sadly none of us can afford to work with the cars we love because we would never be able to make the payments. 98% of them there dont even know what these cars are for, there just a sales item to them.
