Agreed on the first point.

The second point is where I have an issue. I don't oppose your right to 
take your stuff where you want. And, in fact, I voted in favor of the MA 
right to repair bill. Because I believe in it.

It's still my opinion that you're wasting your money when you do. The 
last time I took my car to a non-dealer they RUINED THE ENGINE due to 
lack of skill. They had to pay a dealer shop to get it running again, 
but the damage was done and the engine was never entirely right after 
that. Burn me once, etc., etc.
