They are all the same for some part or other: my Mercedes Air Mass Sensor failed a year ago - £20~£30 (40~60 $NZ) with most manufacturers. No, no - it's integrated into the plastic housing of the engine management system, so that'll be £1000 (2000 $NZ) and three weeks because it has to be programmed for the specific car at the factory.
Or a third of that and two day turnround if I send the current one to a company in England... Decisions, decisions... Big Grin | :-D
And the English company warranted it for two years, where Mercedes is only the one year on parts.
There are times when I wish we were back in the era of carbs, and points instead of total engine management - at least you stood a chance of fixing it yourself... Sigh | :sigh:
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
