Technician is recommending to replace fuel breather vent valve/valvetronic gasket/and eccentric sensor gasket at no additional charge in labor since technician is in the area of repair. You would only pay for the additional requested parts.

Parts $186.00

Parts might be ok. I'd have to check the price on the valve.

What was labor?

Hmm
Confusing
The email mentions valve cover leaking
But the estimate only mentions OFHG leak
And that is 595

And wtf is this... 142 to replace burned out brake light?....

Damn
I was driving home... And this white car pulls up next to me at a light
At first i couldn't tell what it was.. could tell it's some sort of bmw
But what threw me off was the NOISE
That thing was growling like a beast... I thought it was some sort of american muscle car just from the sound
Turned out to be an m6 with matte white paint
Don't know if it was a factory paint job though... Didn't think it looked all that good
