Valero Rye Brook is a crooked gas station. I went in for (what I thought would be) a routine NYS inspection, only for ""Omar"" to tell me I needed new brakes, new tires, new etc. etc. etc. Somehow, I passed the inspection anyway .... because my new buddy Omar was going to give me a ""deal"" on the brake job. Sure thing! Anything to get my car out of there as soon as possible.\r
Now, my Z4 -- which was in perfect condition when I drove it in to Valero on 6/1 but drove it out (very carefully) with a rattling noise following the ""inspection"" -- is at BMW with a loose belt. Belts *do not* come loose on a BMW all by themselves. In 20 years of driving several of them, that has NEVER happened. Now, I am faced with thousands of dollars in repair for a lousy $37.00 inspection. True, I didn't need an appt. and was out in an hour -- but it just wasn't worth it.\r
Omar is a complete crook. And guess what -- he still hasn't called me back with his great ""deal"" on the brake job. No need to wonder why about that.
