Default DEALERS! <grrrr>

I went to pick up the ONLY airmix actuator around here and the fricken dealer wants $94 for it. So I tried the "How much is that after my discount?" and he said he could knock 10% off.
Rockauto has it for $42 <sigh>

I feel your pain. I recently bought a TB gasket from GM, $46.50........ Vaseline not included. Maybe if it didnt have to come from Australia It would have been cheaper???

Sometimes thats the way to go for parts... Got a Keyless entry module the other day for $13 Bucks... They called it Cruise control module...

I went to Performance Pontiac who didn't have one but looked up local inventory and said Bill Rapp Superstore had one. They're on the Corner of Burnet and Thompson Rds.

While at the dealerships I checked to see if they had any SSEi'* and neither had one :(

I used to live 2 minutes from Bill Rapp. I've had my last Bonne repaired at their body shop (would never do it again). I was just there last weekend looking for SSEis. They really don't have many good used cars right now actually.

They kept trying to get me to look at/test drive and '04 SLE. They kept saying it was fully optioned except not supercharged. They pointed it out in the lot and I could see from the office that it didn't even have HUD so I left.
