Default Question please respond

Since I'm new and this is the section to post almost anything, is there anybody with an opinion about the average pay mechanics/techs in the automotive industry recieve, and if shops should supply scanners for their techs? [sm=feedback.gif]
P.S. anyone done an engine on a 2000 bmw 530i, what is the deal with seperating engine from tranny, holy s%#@, it's going to be fun putting that back together, it's like bmw welded the torque converter to the flywheel.[sm=smiley35.gif]

i dont know about the auto tranny, but my dad, who is also a mechanic just replaced the clutch and gearbox in his bimmer, and the gearbox is not internally repairable....they seal them once assembled...he tried and tried to get it open, and nothing shy of cutting it open would he bought a new one.

mechanics get about average pay
usually ranges from 20,000 to upwards to 60,000
depends where you work at thats all
