Re: Misc responses to contents of #2881

Sir, I'm a cad and a lowlife ruffian! However, the list price for that
filter is $14.75, and I pay about 4 bucks. The first one I bought, about 2
years ago, had to come from the dealer, and WAS $12.00 to the customer. He
was pi..ed. We had him so used to the other one on his 5K, he just couldn't
believe it.
