Unlimited for 7 days eh?
What if it's not fixed in 7 days? Buy again I guess.
Maybe we ought to save up on repairs and all chip in for videos?

I like the one on ACC repair that says often no parts required. Did someone figure out how to rebuild these units without rebuilding them?

Just kidding.........

Actually a good idea but the 7 day thing could be a drag. Plus some user manual notes or something would be nice since my computer is not installed under the hood.
Just a thought.

Why pay for repair help videos, when all you have to do is ask the members for help.

I have worked on the 123 body for many years and it is one of the most basic cars out there. You can buy any tools necessary (most of the time used), and all repairs are straight forward.

I started working on them as a kid, and am sure that if anyone needed help they could simply ask myself or a lot of other members here for help.

The videos are a good idea as a last resort but things like changing, or adjusting the antenna are just soooooooo basic.

My two cents (or a buck and a half Canadian)

Can't fault the guy for trying to make an honest buck.

I think videos are great idea for servicing the benz for novices. Many times a picture or photo can explain way more than can be said in words.

Members may explain repairs that are above others experience and without photos are difficult to understand. It's easy to do many of these repairs when you've worked on the "auto" for many years.

No no one is being coerced to purchase this service as we are for government services we don't need or use.

Hopefully Qrome will make a lot of money on this service as "we" vote voluntarily with our wallet.

Our attitude needs to be appreciative that our market is a worhwhile investment for someone to risk their hard earned resources to offer this service to our humble interest. I am. Thanks!
