Bandit posted the link.

You can get replacements for your car w/o going to the dealer. The replacements hook up to the factory air lines etc w/o any problems

Jimi, remember when you use the search for something, to look at the date of the threads. Mailibu only posted 3 times, 2 years ago and we havent heard from him since.
