Yes, I've been meaning to post my BTDT as well ...

I was hoping to be able to set up a situation with Didi that worked as well
as it did when she was at Carlsen (Carlsen was almost a "one stop shopping"
situation for me when Didi was there), but as you can see from her message
there is likely to be more of a delay now than there was then.  That is the
only slightly negative thing from my experience.

... on the positive side ... I asked her to try to get me a set of UFO
rotors for my V8 for the $200 price that others have reported.  She could
not do that at first, but she dug until she did find them for me.  She
worked to get the parts for me at the minimum cost possible ... *and then*
... she delivered the parts to me here at work!  That kind of service is
probably pretty close to impossible to beat.  Of course that would only
apply in a fairly limited geographical area ... others who are more distant
may not find as much of a differentiation between Didi and other sources.
