Please ask the shops whether they'll be agreeable to installing parts supplied by you for this job... many shops will only guarantee their work if they also supply the components...I plan to buy the BSM parts from BoraParts, (seems like the best price!) and I am going to solicit quotes for the installation labor and fluids, etc., from 3 or 4 shops that have performed this work in my region. They are all within about 200 miles.
Count me in!...I'm willing to take the lead in filing a class action lawsuit if fellow BHW owners will join in. If we each are willing to contribute 10 or 20 bucks to the cause, we may be able to make a difference.
I'm going to start by contacting the office of the Washington State Attorney General, since my state has a "lemon law" for cars with defects that affect the usability/reliability of the vehicle.
I'll let y'all know what I find out from the state AG's office.
