bdub12 is on a distinguished road

So I had an appointment today to have mine listened to.

I basically told the technician that if they were going to replace it with a R8 TC then I'd just live with the noise. He took it for a drive and came back and said it definitely needs a new TC.

He told the service manager to specifically make sure it was the RL product as there have been previous issues with the reman R8 TC. They ordered one up and will be here next week.

It was awesome having all this information through 42 pages to go in with. The service manager told me the RL was a "new reman" and I told him that didn't make any sense. I told him what TransEngineer said about it being new but with a reman product number to force dealers to return the old TC as a core. He said no its a reman because it has a reman number and I just quit arguing with him.

Either way I'm happy so far I'm getting the latest replacement that seems to have the best opportunity to kill the noise so I'm optimistic.
