Bosch has a large markup on their prices. You need to find a dealer
that will sell with lower markup than Bosch recommends. I just got a
qoute of $120 for your set and $57 for a 5 cylinder. I get a mechanic
discount. This discount is something I retained from my Porsche VW
wrenching days. I don't get the highest discount available.
No, I don't want to sell any just letting you know the discount that is
The guy I do business with recently bought an 86 4KSQ and is interested
in the Q-list. I'm sending the info to him today. Maybe another Q-list
parts discount possibility.
If you don't care where you are, you ain't lost.
