	I got a bomb out of a 70,000 mile '91 200TQ for $25.00 last 
summer.  Same thing, they had no idea this was an expensive part.  I told 
them exactly what it was, I just didn't tell them it was a trouble spot, 
and hence valuable.

	I love those deals!  Like my $50.00 set of BBS wheels for the RX7 
a couple years ago. (I'mm working on another set of BBSs for $50.00 right 
now - going to get them tonight I hope.  I'll report to the list later)
