Was this front or rear?  Right or left?  Made up with metric
connectors?  Specific FLAPS part number for 200q20v or some generic
assembly that covers several vehicles?  You wouldn't believe the dolts the
local AutoZone store folks have manning their computers.  Also, they
borrowed the robber-baron pricing ethics from the local Audi
dealership.  They have to order almost everything beyond what you might
find at WalMart.
