comment How many hours for roof reinforcements replacement
How many hours did the shop quote you? See if you can find (or if they can present) auto repair labour guide — a book (or software) that lists hours necessary to perform certain tasks for many different cars. I don’t know if there’s one such thing in Romania, but there are plenty available in English, and maybe someone here could quote you an estimate from that. Although it seems like very specialized job, not sure this would be listed (but there could be some generic rate for cut-and-weld body work).

This is more of a comment, than an answer. You have plenty of rep to leave a comment.

comment what is the difference between DOT3 and DOT4 brake fluids?
I’ve rejected the edit, because it changes the post completely, and make it contradict within itself. If the post is wrong, it should be downvoted and that should be substantiated with references (same goes for author). The edit may well be a correct one, but there is no reference, and it is better suited as a comment.

@MarkJohnson That is what the unit looks like: [image](i.ebayimg.com/00/s/OTYwWDEyODA=/…. The plastic housing incorporates plug boots on the bottom, and pack on top (with aluminium heatsink).

comment Honda Civic braking problems in warm climate
@fassetar, while this is a good answer, and probably a correct one (air in the brake system would indeed cause same symptoms), you should not award the acceptance just because it “looks” right. Try to fix the car first, and if that is indeed what had caused it, then accept.

Maybe you should elaborate the above within your answer. Otherwise, essentially one-sentence reply is not quality.
