Re: Starter motor..

That's rediculous...... and an even bigger slap across the face with the whole trade price thing!.

Bursons or Repco have bosch hi torque or something replacements for 1/5th that ammount, think they're universal for 6's and 8's from xf to au. You'd be able to buy a gear reduction starter for under that wouldn't you.?

I got one of those fitted into my XF for only $250!

$1080? How much markup would be on that!??
