$120.00/ hr is the off- season rate. They have to pay for the bling-y showrooms and shops somehow, and I understand that. All I ask is that they do the work right and stand behind it. When that isn't the case then I can't and won't justify the cost!

Hell, there was a time I would let them do tire changes for me. I watched while the "mechanic" ripped off a valve stem from a tube (that he forgot to loosen the nut from) while pulling the tire off as if it were tubeless. Then they tried to tell me it was an old rotted tube. When I shut them down (I bought the tube 2 months before, from them) , they gave me a new HD tube no-charge. It would have been a different story if I had not been standing there, watching. That was the last time a paid to have someone change a tire for me. Anger and disgust can be great motivators to learn a new skill.
