My power steering saga - got the car back

Finally got my car back today after pretty much two full weeks - UGH. Parts had to be ordered from Germany and yadda yadda. Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

For those interested, here's the whole list of what was done.

"Determination was made to replace the rack and the pump as well as the line. Installed re-mfg rack swap over rie rods and below. Installed new pressure line. Replaced p/s pump. Disassembled both center intake tube and loosened and fastened a/c compressor for access. swapped over storage res to new pump and reinstalled. Filled fluids and bleed. Measured front and rear and set front and rear toe.

1 HXHD screw
3 Rubber O-ring
Bellows Clamp Ring
Lock Ring
Pentosin
Pressure Line
Pressure Line Connector
Steering Gear
Bolt 10X45mm
Power Steering pump"

Of course after all this, I notice my car is pretty rough at idle, possibly a faulty spark plug, but they wouldn't notice it or do anything about it without me pointing it out, right? They did only have it for two weeks and test drove it enough to fill up the tank and use 1/4 of the new tank, but of course they wouldn't notice something that and take proactive action - no way.

Grr.
