    Sometimes the price reflects the effort to get it removed... even a little thing like that could be a pain in bottom to remove (without damaging anything else that they could sell).

    Grass is always greener on the other side. They will have a lot of costs to run, insure, secure their site. Also remeber they have to pay for the cars as well. It takes a lot of selling bits to get your money back....

    Think they usually work in round figures (and cash!). Don't think you'll get much for less than a tenner however insignificant the part is. (same would probably apply at Halfords, VX dealers etc - only difference is they'll accept your credit card). (Oh yeah, and Halfords would offer to fit it "free" for a few quid using some kid from behind the counter who's never fitted one before).

    Anything small enough to fit in a pocket never gets paid for by me now...

    I remember picking up an tweeter cover for the inside of the wing mirror for my corsa B, the guy looked at it and scratched his head and asked me where it goes. I showed him and he said "oh right it looks a **** without it" £15 please...
