I'm guessing illegal smogs. The BAR thinks this piece of garbage STAR thing will keep the cheaters out. Bullcrap, my competitors are known cheaters and they are qualifying under STAR just fine. They low ball a $15 smog ad knowing they get $150 per illegal smog, makes for a good pay day, us HONEST people are the ones that get screwed under STAR.
speaking of illegal smogs , the shops who don't qualify will continue or maybe increase the amount of cleanpiping in their shops , after all they have been doing it all along whats Star mean to them anyway ?
Now its a better reason to cleanpipe right ? and that is the attitude some stations have unfortunately , i am pissed as hell BAr DOESN'T GET OFF THEIR DONUT EATING arses and do something about the cheaters . Yeah they qualify for star and are gonna continue to cheat right under there fat arses .
There's one obvious strategy. Get people talking to each other NOW, and then if half the shops have to
close down after 1-1, raise the price. At that point, the word will have gotten around, and people will
just show up, and discover 59.95 + cert, and NO free car wash. I'm surprised that nobody figured this
I sure hope there are still some owners and techs with two brain cells left that will raise their prices , suply and demand , raise the price , you don't have to have even a GED to figure this out .when i get star my price is 79.99 no coupons , no allegations , no haggling, no pretest test , nothing , just that , or walk .C ya , BAR is screwin us , so the consumer gets screwed, don't feel bad , weve all been a consumer under CA and all got screwed so do your best STAR go get your money and make it worth it .Smile while you do it you worked hard for it .
There will always be the whores. The shop owners, and the customers both. I'll bet there will be a lot of
c notes in the ash tray in full view for the $11.75 retest. look for a 20 dollar "et fee" as well.
I hope it doesn't take long before they get uc runs with a 95 safari timing "pass/na/", previa timing, or the tsi berratta egr functional,. No way they check things. and then there will be some name change, long appeal, etc stall to milk $$ cleanpipe longer after they do get caught.
