Ouch! What are they made of -- platinum? You may want to
shop around next time: I got mine for about $5.00 from a local
store who was willing to spend the time cross-referencing them.
(and they were Bosch originals to boot).
The only difficult part was that I had to solder mine in, which
can be quite a pain if you have a wimpy soldering gun, as I did.
