Looking for people in Chicago to do a check up on my 200TDI that's arriving from Spain and maybe some light restoration work...

SRS light on the RRC needed to be reset for VA safety inspection, but apparently AMS doesn't have a Testbook anymore, so I crossed the river last Friday into Goose's Marylandistan to Independent in Bethesda. Dean was super nice and kind enough to give me a tour of the facilities and talk to me about the various projects they have. He didn't have the Testbook at that location, but said he could take care of me on Monday.

Dean took care of my SRS light in a matter of minutes, and told me to come back if it popped up again before the inspection. Very happy to say that the VA inspection is now behind me for another year, thanks to Dean.

As others have said before, Independent SPT in Bethesda is a great shop with experienced LR people, both heritage and new LRs. Very professional and courteous. If he ever shows up at the NoVA HH, I'm sure he'll be drinking gratis...

Also have to say that Overland 4X4 in Alexandria is another great place in the DMV area. John is incredibly knowledgeable as well. My friend down the street swears by his shop, but Overland is actually farther for us, though it is close to his office.

Do NOT take your Land Rover or any other car to AA Auto in Charleston. I took my new (to me) Defender 90 to them for an oil change and to install the 4 jump seats in the back. I had temporary prepositioned the seats in the back to where I assumed they went. Apparently they were placed in the wrong spot but, AA went ahead and installed the seats in this position without even talking to me. I would have never had them install seats in the wrong place. Get real. I'm a novice at best when it comes to this car. They initially wanted $200 to install the 4 seats, working at $100 an hour. I was told that not just anyone can install these seats so I felt comfortable with them doing so and we agreed on $150.
Well, when I got home I found out that the seat backs we not screwed in (apparently I told them I wanted to install those which makes NO sense) and the seat bottoms were installed incorrectly. The support on the jump seat does not support the seat when its down. Why a company would ever install something that is incorrect is beyond me. I paid them to install the seats correctly and they failed miserably to do so.
I then took the truck back for them to fix the seats thinking they would make it right. After talking to them on the phone (it'll only take a couple hrs to fix)...4 days later I got a call saying that they installed the seats how I wanted them. Why would I want seats installed incorrectly?
Now to fix the situation Brian wants 4-5 hours to make it right, meaning $400-$500. Who is he kidding? This place is a joke. I even have sent them other Defender 90's in the past and this is the level of the customer service that they provide. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR HERE. I read the other reviews of this place and figured I'd give them a shot. I should have stuck with my gut and taken the other negative reviews seriously that I've read. There's a reason why our friend in common doesn't bring his truck to you anymore either.
Lots of thanks for nothing. Act like you care about your customers next time before you install something incorrectly.
