3. The order authorizes the contractor or sub-contractors to perform test drives and transferring drives.

II. Price in the order form, quotation
1. At the request of the client, the order form will state the rates that are expected as a result of the execution of the contract. Prices that come into question can be referenced with the price and labor value catalogs provided by the contractor.
2. If the customer requests a binding quotation, it requires a written estimate, in which the labor and parts in each case be listed in detail with their respective price. The contractor is bound to this estimate for 3 weeks after submission. The costs for an estimate rendered may be charged to the client if this is agreed upon in individual cases.
If an order is placed as a result of the estimate, then any costs for the estimate will be calculated into the invoice. The total price, however, may not be exceeded without the consent of the client.
3. If prices are included in the order form, an estimate of the sales tax must also be included as in the quotation.

III. Completion
1. The contractor will seek to observe completion dates even if they are not binding. If the amount of work exceed that of the original contract, the completion date may be extended accordingly.
2. If the contractor agrees to a binding completion date, which he is not likely to able to comply with, or does not adhere to the completion date, he is in breach of contract and will owe the client compensation for damages. An obligation to pay damages does not apply if the contractor cannot observe the completion date due to natural disasters, strikes, lockouts, breakdowns, lack of supplies or similar reasons and conditions. In cases of longer delays, the contractor must notify the client immediately.
