Why asking for "price" is the wrong question to ask

So you own a German Car (maybe its a BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz, Mini Cooper or Volkswagen) and you are looking for an auto repair shop to service your vehicle.

General Repair Shop or Specialist? Vehicles today especially German makes such as BMW, Mercedes,  and Audi/Volkwagen can be extremely complicated in their workings.
