VW Service - 240,068 miles

High, but not as bad as I thought ...

"D" Level Service - Air Filter, Pollen Filter, Oil Change, Plugs, Check Codes, etc ...
Parts $186.51, Labor $340.00 = $526.31

4 Wheel Alignment - $99.95

Replace broken Dipstick (handle broke) - $19.80

At my request they hunted for signs of where the oil is going - the turbo output pipe shows signs of oil, so as we supposed it is most likely the turbocharger that is causing the oil consumption. For now I'll just have to watch the oil level carefully.

Total Parts - $206.31; Total Labor $439.95; Sales Tax (8.625%) $55.74 = Total $702.00

Rental - $109.08

This one is too good not to share - Enjoy!

Cletus is passing by Billy Bob's hay barn one day when, through a gap
in the door, he sees Billy Bob doing a slow and sensual striptease in
front of an old green John Deere tractor.

Buttocks clenched, he performs a slow pirouette, and gently slides off
first the right strap of his overalls, followed by the left. He then
hunches his shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets
his overalls fall down to his hips, revealing a torn and frayed plaid
shirt. Then, grabbing both sides of his shirt, he rips it apart to
reveal his stained T-shirt underneath. With a final flourish, he tears
the T-shirt from his body, a hurls his baseball cap onto a pile of

Having seen enough, Cletus rushes in and says, "What the heck are you
doing, Billy Bob?"

'Jeez, Cletus, ya scared the bejeezers out of me", says an obviously
embarrassed Billy Bob. "But me'n the Ol' Lady been havin' trouble
lately in the bedroom d'partment, and the therapist suggested I do
'somethin' sexy to a tractor'."
