RE: Do ever provide your mechanic with your own parts?

Absolutely, the mechanic told me that he could get a part for around $200 and asked me if I wanted to find it or should he go ahead and purchase it. I found it for $120. My mechanic doesn't mind if I get the parts for him.

i do this, whenever i go to a shop, to help keep costs down, and also so i'm "in charge" of the level of quality, that the parts knock-off's for me, unless i WANT one....or it doesn t matter.....
