I am a true believer that you get what you pay for, but I don't believe that you should charge dealership prices using Auto Zone parts. We use World Pac for all our parts, they are the dealership alternative with the same parts but much lower prices to the independent shops. I've seen shops out there that swear they are the Acura experts, Mercedes experts, etc..... and once the guest leaves the shop they call Auto Zone, O'reilly, etc... for the parts that should be stopped if they are claiming to be experts they know Auto Zone parts should not come even close to touching these types of cars.

i agree totally with you. we have a labor rate in calif of between 100.00 to 140.00 per flag hr so that effects the price also.
