'Somebody is taking someone for a ride' with MB parts in Australia
Thanks to all who replied
Autozen, thank you very much for your generous offer
Spent half a day on the phone and found an Importer who sold me a new Bosch pump for $A180 plus tax..........that is ~$US120........incredible price compared to MB (Aust) price of$A669 for the exact same pump!!!!
I find this unbelievable........I hope MB USA is a bit kinder to its owners with its pricing
At least some good has come out of the pump seizure.........I have found a good cheap source of the 'higher volume' service parts in Australia
