I got sticker shock at Pep Boys Auto Part Store yesterday. I had to get
some GOJO Hand Clleaner and for the hell of it decided to check the
prices on Purolater Cabin Filters, compared to what I pay at Chevy ( I
get a discount there).
There was a part number in the book for my Buick buy it was not on the
shelf. I was was scanning the end of the shelf where the stock stickers
are, the stock number and prices are on them. There was no sticker with
the Park Avenue filter number, so I guess its not stocked.
As I'm looking at the stickers I'm seeing prices like $89.00, 99.00,
129.00. When I saw the $199.00 filter I swore out loud,, but then next
to that was a sticker reading a whopping $420.94!!!
It took a few minutes of looking throught the filter book for part
#C35520 but its for a Mercedes CL & SL class type vehicle.
Very heavy gauge plastic frame & the filter material was a hard coarse
material, something like I've never seen before
I guess I don't want to know what Mercedes charges for a cabin air
