Sigh. Yup, same for me when I brought the Cool Vanilla Magnum home from Jason.

$150 is about what they charged me. It's 0.5 hours (maybe 0.75; no reason for this much time) plus tech fees (use of the diagnostic equipment) plus a little more for something else I can't recall.

2012 Stinger Yellow SuperBee - Trinity; HID's; 4.3S Stereo; Flowmaster Outlaws; Black MSRT rims; BC Coilovers; Roof Spoiler; Tinted Tails/Windows; 3.92 gears
2007 Sublime Daytona #82/150 - Predator; VFN AAR hood; OBX LT's/Super 44's; Painted/tinted tails; Martin Bros 940's
2005 Cool Vanilla Magnum - Sold
2011 GWE Challenger R/T Classic 6-speed - Traded
2009 Hemi Orange SuperBee #178/425 - Traded
2006 Silver Steel R/T R&T - Traded

The tech that's trained on this stuff can literally do it in 5 minutes or less. But we all know about "book time".

Do they have a minimum 1 hour charge or something???

Even if they did what's the hourly rate?

That is gouging; plain and simple.

He was under the impression that he could turn them on in the MDS.

Oh well... it is what it is. I'm going to look over the bill and see how the heck they came to that price and then just deal with it. It's done, they are on, my car passed safety. Life's good.
