    I hate that shit

    all these new cars are so fucking complicated that you can do a service but you can't turn none of the codes off

    I remember I had to wait 2 weeks for BMW's regional engineer to come to my local dealership just to program my car

    all he was coming to do was to turn off my daytime running lights SMH


    I'm thinking about opening my own garage just so it would cost effective for me to purchase some of these dealer tools

    nah it wouldn't be necessary for me.............I pretty know enough of what to do

    the problem is the equipment is either highly expensive, or only available to mofos with professional subscriptions to dealer software

    you shouldn't need software access just to change your rotors and do a caliper rebuild SMH

    Jamel where do you buy tools at?

    for example, I'm looking for a reasonably priced flex head digital torque wrench that maxes out at least 150ft/lbs
