    A while back I priced a rad top hose for my '89 205. £34+VAT I was quoted by
    the dealership.

    So when a similar one went on my toyota (£££ parts) celica I almost cried
    lol. Rang the dealer and had to double check the price - the whole coolant
    pipe *set*, including the lower rad hose which is about half a metre long
    and moulded all round all sorts of bits £36 inc VAT.

    Must be the first thing I've bought for it that was cheap!

    True. Some parts are pretty expensive. My brother had to replace the fuel
    filler cap on his '91 205 DTurbo, they charged 60EUR (about £50) for it. The
    filler cap alone, not the styling part (the car coloured plate with the
    plastic stripe on it), which isn't included on the bundle.
    I've heard some are even worst, a fuel filler cap on an Opel (Vauxhall)
    Vectra is sold for 80EUR (about £65) !
    And for VW parts... Well, some of them are just overpriced, and some bills
    are like a slingshot !
