    Angry dealer or stealer?

    so i went to the dealer to get a new trunk seal for my 01 sls [leaker] on the way out i stopped at service to inquire about changing plugs , estimate to change plugs was $350.. "the back plugs arent easy on this car, yada yada. plus the wires might be bad." i said " they're aren't any wires" . service replies "oh yeah you're right..."
    are the plugs on this car that difficult ?? or are these guys a bunch of jokers.. i have changed plugs on 92 4.9 deville. difficult but not bad..

    I'd say if you've done it on a '92 deVille (same car I have) then a N* shouldn't be a problem.

    Side note, I have never done them on a N* car, but I have looked at the engines on many of them, and it doesn't look much harder to do plugs on the N*.

    $350?! It may be a little hard but I don't think it's going to be $350 hard!

    It's easier on the Northstar than the 4.9
