Just as important is knowing a good technician. Ask for Jeff H. to work on your vehicle.

Got that mixed up. Haven't used velarde. I preferred Chui over Abrams is what I meant.

Exactly.

SA's arent really much help. I have my go-to technician and use any SA really when I go. Then I have a smoke with my tech, discuss whats gonna happen. He then tells the SA whats going to really happen and what he needs to change or write up. Lol.
