In Reply to: DEALER TO CHARGE $300+ FOR UGDO?! posted by Charles on January 24, 2000 at 14:01:40:
: Who: New Century BMW
: What: Wants to charge me 300+ for installation and parts for UGDO
: When: Got a quote today
: Where: Alhambra, CA
: Why: Because they want to rip me off...
: Doesn't the UGDO only cost like $130? Furthermore isn't installation done in 10 minutes? Please correct me if I'm wrong and tell me what I would need to install it myself? Thanks.
: PS. Dealer says might be necessary to come to my house and program UGDO to my GDO...?!
If this happened to me, I'd wonder about the other things the same dealer told me.
I always "test" a new business relation. I ask them something I already know about. Once I marked bolts, took pics, etc. before a service to see if there was any chance the services I was charged for were really done. They retorqued the head bolts without removing the valve cover among other things (this was a 240Z).
Why not post here to the board for recomemdations of dealers in your area? And thanks for the heads up on Century.
