The bastards! They broke my Radzierdeckel!

How much will it cost to replace it?

I wonder if GermanStar has them. The guys rotating and balancing the tires broke one. Instead of tapping it out like a reasonable mechanic would do, they slammed the wheel on the balancer and knocked it out.

I would think so after glancing at his website a few weeks ago. Pretty well stocked. Are the asses going to pay for the replacement?

They said to bring the bill by and they would pay me for it. I get free balancing and rotating for the life of the tires, so I guess you get what you pay for.

The Radzierdeckel is $7.10 plus tax. Not bad for an S Class chrome star wheel center cap.

You are better off not taking the bill bakc to them and make them "owe you one" would probably be better value in that down the road.
