If I thought they ripped me off I'd have posted the video publicly and cried foul. That wasn't my intention here. I just wanted opinions based on the experience.

I sincerely believe the work was done. I'm just in the dark as to HOW it was done.
Its a NAFTA thing which will be explained in the new year when the new administration will be in place.

Yeah. I'm not disagreeing with that.

I'm just an eternal optimist and am hoping for the best, which would be a rational explanation of how it was done despite all evidence.

A quick google search shows a machine like this. The note also says you can do a flush in 10min. I'm sure there is a machine for the dual valves on each caliper. Also, Porsche probably turbo charged the machines the dealers use
So they hooked this machine up magically during the 7 minutes of missing tape, have a "turbocharged" machine that does it in less time, and then corrected the fluid level.

Its bull****. The dealer is FOS

Set your camera to never shut down, take it back for a brake fluid flush in the spring. IF they actually do it, time it, then sit down with the "Manager" and explain why you aren't paying.. IF they pull the same BS, get a refund and call the state protection agency that covers auto repair fraud.
