    Rip off!?

    Ok, I picked up my Veccy C intake and went to put my order in for the airbox adaptor (opel part: 5836824) at the local Opel garage.

    When i enquired as to how much this would be they told me €73.00 + VAT....

    its a piece of piping less than a foot long! i said forget about it and went home to look to check if i had the correct part number(online) and i did.

    I went to a few scrappies but they had none so now im snookered.

    My options:

    1. Check out a few more scrappies tomorrow.
    2. Modify the current adaptor.

    what do you think?

    Sounds like the price of a complete airbox - check what they've ordered for you

    here are the numbers that are on my reciept
    G5836834
    G5834828

    yes i kept my reciepts lol...you never know

    DAve
    cork
