Now the question is how long it's been dripping. Is that a diff oil change I smell in your future?

The entire diagnostic process was verifying that the firmware version on the BCM was lower than the updated one for the TSB. It took just over an hour to diagnose, update, perform a multi-point, and then wash the car. No additional upsell attempts. No out of pocket expense.

We did talk about the alignment. He said even if I agreed he would have said it wasn't needed when I got there. Apparently they get a lot of complaints about the stock tires on all Alfas wearing faster than people think they should, and have learned that they are particularly sensitive to misaligned toe. While the QV tires are a gimmick for performance numbers, the normal Ti and Q4 tires should last a lot longer. I didn't bring up the amount they were charging. The advisor isn't the one who sets the prices.

No but they would have piss tubes so you could dispose of what you drink.

That's bizarre. Those things are in there super tight from the factory. I agree. Drain and refill for science. Gives you an opportunity to marvel at all the iron goo captured by the magnet. That's always fun.
