     I refuse to refer anyone to Phil long Audi here in Colo. Spgs. I 
NEVER take my car to these idiots! They tried to charge me $735 for a 
four wheel alignment -4 mount and balance. I had a frozen bolt on the 
front tie rod and a frozen bolt on the rear A-arm. So does this 
justify $735? I laughed so hard I was almost crying! I took the car 
to my mechanic and his alignment contacts and ended up paying $145 
for a 4 wheel  align.-4 mount and balance, new tie rod and bolt 
drilled out of rear A-arm with new one put in. I HATE the dealership
