Can you guys hear a pin drop? Here's to quiet times in your rides (sort of): Save money on future and routine service here:

They were pleasantly surprised I already had the TSB number LOL
Hey everyone -

All of your vehicles are either at the dealer or will be going in soon. Please let us all know how it turns out!

You know how to reach me if you need to get in touch (PM me your VIN, mileage, phone number, and dealer info). I'll cook something to tide me over; hope you have good news soon!

Whoa, I've never heard of this option! Are you telling me I could've deleted my Mighty Morphin Power Rangers muffler? LOL *I'm just thinking about different lunchbox themes on a Focus*
