I suspect we have at least 5 years left with him, possibly 7 years, but I can't imagine as many as 10 years.

BTW, both those prices, $1,500 and $3,500, are what Enrique charges, installed, for each transmission.
Paul, I was at Enrique's shop yesterday. He is taking the news of his daughter's cancer rather hard. Being a Mediterranean male he does not like to show emotion (I know the feeling) but the news was pretty tough. She is still undergoing chemo.

I told him that everyone here is pulling for her (and him).
