    Well i work for an autozone so this "scam" was kinda easy to pull off but....
    Buy A4LD and return old core-$1200.Return the new one after the core is gone and they have to pay me for it so i get $1600 back. Then I did the same with the torque convertor and made like $54 bucks off that. So with that money....im finding a T-5 :nice:

    im glad you think you're hot snot after you just bit the hand that feeds you. why dont you tell us your name and store # so we can turn you in? Your stupidity makes our parts cost more because your theviery is figured into the total cost of the parts. I cant stand people who steal, and I'll kick a person in the face who thinks they're "cool" because they steal and ends up costing me money.

    go to hell...

    Easy..Not everybody is like that.
    I have a very honest non-"scam. But it helps me out. We are constantly getting autozone batteries in as cores. If I can revive it I am allowed to keep it as long as I supply a core.(I still have about 30 from the derby cars.) Needless to say over the last 2 years I've managed to get a duralast Gold in everything I own, with a spare for each one.

    Its not stealing the core is worth $400 to the reman company and they're takin that in trade when i bought the new one. So whether or not i keep the new one its still worth enough for them to credit 400 for it. And I discussed it all with the manager of the store beforehand and he was ok with it so you guys can go f@^* yourselves :rolleyes:

    he is reviving battery cores, and actually replacing them with cores...not buying stuff, turning in the core and then returning everything just for the money :notnice:

    lol if you want me to be really honest.....I had be generously donating my cores to the good of the company, until the regional manager told me I could pick through the bad ones to try and find something.....I even do it on my own time, so I'm not even clocked in.
    Thats funny how you tried to turn it around on me. I would swear you worked at the next store over from me.

    LOL its funny you mention that. That car has one of the better ones in it.
    I came across a DG with dual terminals (couldn't remember if it was still side post or if I was using top post.


    I don't think you understand. He's not bringing anything, he's stealing your car and hurry up a get the T5 in there. Nobody can catch Cro in an N/A 5spd. :nice:
