URDRWHO, you might look at that $1350 differently after getting a quote for $2400 for essentially the same thing for a VW. https://www.alltrackworld.com/apr-tune- ... aler-2400/ That's me and my Alltrack site.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

The same for Botox. People pay large amounts of money to be injected with ..........

"Yet despite being so toxic and so costly it is in huge demand. Many people pay large amounts of money to have it injected into their foreheads. It is botulinum toxin - better known as Botox - a toxin produced by bacteria first discovered in poorly prepared sausages during the 18th Century. It was named after the Latin for sausage - botulus."

I guess I'm just not the kind of guy who cares if I could say my "stuff" is better than another person's "stuff".
It is true, Listerine was originally marketed as a floor cleaner and as a treatment for Gonorrhea.

Yep - the digital age is in control of our wallet! As much as I like them, there is a reason I've never owned a VW and that reason is $$$$ for parts and service. There are parts on Volvo's that are reasonably priced and even the dealer can have those parts priced well.
