Next monday im taking my car into a shop to get my window fixed and also install new rotors and pads that I ordered today....


What else should I have them do while im there.... I have money right now so thats not an issue.....

I was thinking of the following.... any other suggestions???

-Oil....
-Transmission fluid
-Power Steerring fluid
-Differential Fluid
-Brake Fluid
-Spark Plugs
-Belts ( Altenator and AC.... any more?????)


Im not calling this Inspection 2 cause I really don't care about some of the things on that list.... But what other things should I do while the cars there????

flush the engine, i heard its well worth it. some shops have these pressurized machines that they hook up to your engine and blast all the dirt and carbon deposits out. i know midas has a machine made by bilstein. its probably around $100 tho.
