I installed new tirerack tpms sensors. Just need the ecu to recognize them. How long to scan/set them? Hoping to get it done real fast early so the car can still be in the show. 2008 wrx.

OK, thanks. I plan to attempt to clean it as best I can. I might pick up some lube anyway as something good to have in the garage. Appreciate the offer.

3. Find/fix rear suspension noise. Fix loose rearview mirror. Change Gearbox & Rear Diff oil (I assume the shop has proper fluids on hand for purchase). Downpipe install (maybe).

Preorder \ purchase from parts department before your bay time or you will waste precious time and probably spend more money on additional bay time.

I can't confirm, but it might be something that can be done really quick on the service drive. If you get there early, park your car for the show, then go find amir and ask him how long it will take, probably after the car show, you can head back to the service drive and someone will help you, but I really have no idea how long it will take, so check with Amir after you park your car.

it really depends on the tech, most of them are going to have the right grease sitting around and will probably take care of it, remember that when you tip but it's a good idea to be prepared with everything you need beforehand.

yes, gates open at 7:30, techs will start showing up around 8.

so whenever you get here, you'll want to check in at the service drive, you'll sign a waiver, you'll get a wristband, and if they can't put you in the shop right away, they'll take your cell number and put you in a bay as soon as it's your turn.

My car with the RCE Yellows/Sti struts and stop tech slotted rotors.







Another angle revealing my passed out gf, lol.

It was my first shop day and it was pretty cool. Good people all around and a good time. Bucky Lasek decided to come over and hang out with me while I wrenched. Kind of cool he took a few seconds to check out the guys getting their hands dirty right?

I think I can answer this for Sam, seems easy enough, ...when the hours clearly say Big Event from 8-3.

But in your defense, I do think they ran the shop days longer when they were not in conjunction with the Big Event.

I think they shut down at two actually. They told me they start shutting down at two so they can try and have everyone out by 3pm.

Jon,

yeah, as Greg mentioned, it is 3pm for the shop day in conjunction with the Big Event.

I'll be sure to be more clear about it in the future so you can plan your time to take care of your needs in the shop better
