i went in there today, to relize the tranny update for gts's requires the whole dash to come out. Along with the steering column and the...well you get it everything, including my alarm/remote start that cost me 200 plus about 5 hours of my time installing it. Well they dont want to re-install it because they are retards and say that they are illegal on manuals. Well so what, it was in there when they started on it. So i went to best buy, my place of employment and grabbed the install chart and brought it to them, and said here ya go...good luck. If they fail to install it right. I will charge them 200 bucks in labor for me to do it. Thats hopefully what being mecp certified hopefully pays off, so my install was considered "professional" ha, i wish!! any way they said wednesday definately. yea right the motor is still on a stand.
tell them to install it, but don't let them include it on the receipt (this is better for both you and them). most times if a shop does an illegal install they won't give you a receipt...obviously since your getting more than this done you need a receipt, just subtract this from it and pay cash
that said..i hope you get your car back soon...sounds like you won't be visiting that shop again next time you need help
