For the required annual Texas inspection (so you can get your registration sticker) I've always taken my cars to a trusted tire shop. The cost is always around $20 for the inspection. However, last year I took my 04 360 Spider to the Austin Ferrari dealership for the inspection. I noticed a $160 labor fee on top of the $20 fee I was used to paying. It has me wondering, is there really any benefit to having the dealership perform the inspection over another shop? I ask without a full understanding of what an inspection entails -- if it involves a lift of the vehicle then I see where having the dealership perform the inspection may be worth the added expense. Any thoughts on this topic? Thanks.
