Got an email today saying that if I want to bring my MINI by Brecht service they will gladly set my clock to Pacific Daylight Time for me – FREE OF CHARGE!!!! It’s almost worth the 300 mile round trip just to get something for free, make me feel less bad about the $320 oil change. Ouch, still smarts.
I do have to go back soon, though. The passenger-side engine mount has leaked and needs replacing (refilling?), should probably get that fixed.
