Favorite line "Thats when you wined up at my shop. But you've already been at my shop and I told you what you didn't want to hear at a price you couldn't afford"

I'll be honest, I did some of the mistakes as a owner by choosing a shop based on dollars rather than quality and customer-service and I did get burnt bad. Not as bad as an engine build gone wrong, but still, about 2~3K in wasted monies and damaged brand new parts worth 6K (thankfully repairable). In my defense though, EVERYONE I spoke to in my research recommended this shop. Ultimately, there is no single rule that you can follow and always be sure you're doing it right. If its meant to happen, it will happen.

Good watch for sure. It really puts things in perspective for bargain shoppers such as myself. But he said "at the end of the day" too many times. But at the end of the day, he is right

yeah and I didn't like some of his examples either

but he's not a public speaker. he's a tuner, and we all understood his underlying message so I'm ok with that
