Thomas & Trey's SF Photowalk -- San Francisco, California!
 
Thomas & Trey's SF Photowalk -- San Francisco, California

Here is the first of two group shots from +Thomas Hawk and +Trey Ratcliff's photowalk last night in San Francisco.

This was the largest photowalk I've ever been to and it was an absolute blast! If the walks keep getting bigger I'm going to have to bring a fisheye for these group shots... ;)

It was great to see everyone last night.

Let the tagging begin!

Do not recommend their service department and how they overcharge. Their service charges are between 20% to 30% higher than other dealers in the Bay Area. For simple oil/filter change for 15k service on my Audi A7 they charge $530.00, called few other Audi dealers in the Bay Area, their average charge was between $370.00 to $430.00! I asked Steven Creek service expert for the reason and his reply was because of the geography of their location their prices are higher, which means they prefer to deal with rich/wealthy customers who don't care about how much they spend on their car service. I asked service advisor to match/honor the price and he said he won't be able to do it (while I was at their location)! To me this is more like discrimination rather than giving equal service opportunity to the community. I have tried to buy a car from them before, but their prices were too high and not competitive. I'm hoping Audi Steven Creek's management would improve their customer service experience in future.
