Mpower seems like a legit place. I met a few techs there and they are very knowledgeable and friendly. Linh, the guy a few post above you just had a car taken there so he should be able to help you out.

So that's what that thing is for! Genius. Gotta love that German engineering. It always annoyed the hell out of me because it would block my view out my front window. Now if they would make it easier to look to the side when I'm changing lanes.
