You should replace the flux capacitor while you're at it. Maybe the left handed smoke shifter, too. (That's the component in the exhaust that folks often defeat with the "golf tee mod.")

Many times there is a software update or other "campaign" that needs to be performed. Our 340 went in for a routine oil change last week, and they had to reprogram the DME. 3 hours total. But my...
