Ford spare parts rip-off
We are buying a new work car, I managed to convince the powers to be to get a Laser over a Corolla (even though the Laser is about $600 dearer). It helped that the Transport Officer is a mad keen Geelong supporter, guess who sponsers them? Anyway, we decided to get front & rear carpet mats and a drivers side weatheshield as well. Prices: Mats $91.49, Weathershield $76.42 . Hell, it doesn't come out of my pocket so why should I care, but still is very exy if you ask me. And no , I haven't checked the equivalent Toyota parts, I expect they are similar in price. Add GST to those prices as well.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
