Nick

Thanks, NickCats, that seems like a great price for the Brake Fluid change.

$245 for a wheel alignment is typical Porsche BS.
It should not take moret than hour for a trained PCar guy to do a spec alignment.
(figuring your dealers hourly labor rate is $150 per hour TOPS!)
The tech guy has probably done it a thousand times and I doubt your car was seriously out of alignment to begin with.
Its no more complicated aligning a Pcar then it is doing the same for any other sports car.
For $245 they should at least let you sit in it while they do it.
Any speed shop can do just a good a job and save you a hundo.

For $245 they should have a hot chick to give... SENSORED...

NickCats/bmusatti, If you need a brake fluid flush give me a call and bring a 6-pack. $105??? Are they nuckin' futs!!! ATE Super Blue can be had for less than $15/can (I bought two cans just to be safe since I was flushing out the old stuff completely).

Hey Sammy, I will take you up on this in 2007! When you do the brake fluid, this also does the clutch fluid too...right??

Yes, the clutch uses the same fluid as the brakes and can be done at the same time. I flushed the brake lines only before I put Nicole up for the winter, but I plan to put her up and do the clutch this spring. I was going to do the clutch but I didn't have a stubby wrench at the time so I decided to wait.
