Re: Bombs found in Chicago...pricing info

Holy cow batman!

I knew our part prices are high here in Finland, but check this one out:

857 612 061 C	list (USD) 460.00
443 612 061 H	list (USD) 590.00

prices include 22% VAT
my dealer cost is not substantially less... (not even 25%)

Do we take the cake for the highest bomb prices?
