Yeah seems like a great deal. As I said before, the guy is great. And, yes, I am so glad to have the car working properly. I really hate driving with warped rotors...Now I just need a new ignition wire set. Guess what? I'm buying them from him. It's easier...Like I said before - for me it's often just a logistics thing, not about saving $5... I'm sure everyone that had followed this thread will be relieved...

Yes, I also always try to do extra things for people that deal squarely with me. I also try to frequent the same places. You build a good working relationship and it's a win-win for everyone. Besides, it's nice to walk into a place and know and be known. Trust is priceless...

Living in NYC has been great in that way. People tend to think of Manhattan as a big impersonal place. However, we don't really have malls here or many chain stores. People interact on the street, they're not all isolated in their cars. Most places I go are small business, generally mom and pop places. Like the "good old days"...People know you, remember you and they treat you right...It's refreshing.

Sorry, all, for the tangent...
