Talk me off the ledge...

I wrote an exam for my professional designation in November and the results are being posted this afternoon. I spent about 5 months and 400 hours studying for this thing, and pass rates are about 50% (by design). I'm freaking out over here...can hardly stand it...

Will do all the difficult / free / warranty stuff at the dealership. A couple of guys here have recommended another place for work I actually have to pay for. Apparently the guy that opened up this garage was the dealership's top tech for 10 years.

Why do you ask?

I have a friend who travels from Montreal to NB and back for work...he actually lives in New Brunswick....I'm trying to talk him out of his Acura TL............I guess I could just check on the BMW website to see if there is a dealership there!
