Many of us use our cars as daily drivers. Hence, opening out
the throttle body and not being able to put it back together,
or, worse yet, having to bolt back a leaky part and have to do it
all over again in two days is something we are willing to
PAY to avoid.
Agreed, the gasket may be re-usable, but you're taking a big
chance on a 13 year old car if you COUNT on it being re-usable.

My comment was in regard to your implied assumption that an new gasket was a
necessity, not a belittlement.
