do you guys do "major maintenance" service (ie, 30k, 60k, etc.) stuff? i usually do most stuff myself, but don't mind leaving the major tuneups to pros (but not the dealer!)...
We sure do major services. We are able to perform all the major and minor services along with many other services that you might need. Depending on your needs, we use OEM parts, not OE-like parts, and fluids to performance fluids, like Torco. Most people recently have been using our upgraded fluids over some of the OEM ones. Not saying there is anything wrong with the OEM, just people choosing to have a bit more protection in extreme situations.
