    Dom,

    How long did it take? Did you wait for it or have to leave it there? My FJ is getting to 30k real soon and that sounds like a real good deal. That guy is about to get some big business if we all migrate down there. We should do a maint. day down there. wouldn`t the guy freak if he got to work and theres like 30 FJ`s all sitting there wait for the $259.99 special. ;D

    I dropped it off at 8 and had it back by 1 or 2. For how small the shop is, they get a lot of business.
