I would be speaking with the GM about the unnecessary miles. Shouldn't need more than 1-2 miles to figure out an alignment issue if any at all - just put it on the rack and it will tell you all you need to know. I take a photo and tell them if it needs more than driving around the dealer lot (1/4-1/2 mile tops) then they need to call me for authorization to put miles on it with a good explanation why.

I'd also be making them pay for a new ceramic coat by a competent detailer if necessary. Never let a dealer detail your car - I don't even let them put the stupid plastic number on top of the roof much less wipe it down with dirty rags.

I actually did the paint correction and ceramic coating. Took me an entire weekend.

Do be honest, I made my complaint with them. Bitched and looked like that typical A-hole customer. How far can I really take it before the anxiety isn't worth it?

I stopped going to shops around here because they all suck. I have never once had a good experience. A clutch job gone bad, F'ed up wheels from mounting in every Z i've owned, techs scratching the cars, joy rides, forgot to put oil in (luckily I always check), paying $$$ to troubleshoot a simple problem. ****, I had one shop snap the control arm bolt to the frame and blamed it on the new brake job i did. I tracked the damn thing a few times until I couldn't stand the knocking noise. Wasn't until I got the lift and checked it out for myself. I gave them a little wiggle room again and this is just a reminder.

I'm still searching for 15+ recaro seats. Some dude on Ebay is selling a set for 7K! I'd rather get a Fast Intentions TT kit for that price.

Anyone have a set they are selling?

Got my admin intakes today, and ordered some PPE LTH too. Good day. They’re in stock too, so in a few weeks here, the Z is gonna transform!! I couldn’t justify switching from non resonated to resonated TPs...might as well go LTH right...

I bolted the correct nut for the seat belt buckle. Then... hit 160.
