hi guys,
im after an XH snorkel for my ED XR6, just as a little mod. I saw on the tech doco here that they are avout 32 bux from ford. Iv emailed two dealers around my place and iv got quotes of $50 and $61.50.
Has there been a change recently or what?
Its interesting too see that two give quite different prices i recon,
cheers

It's weird you know.....2 Ford dealerships only a few suburbs away from each other have completely different price structures in their parts departments. I noticed that Costanzo Ford in Bundoora can be more expensive than Bayfords in Preston depending on the item. You'd think that it would be a set price structure for all of the Ford parts dealerships.

it is fairly well a set price, just some places are retail dealers and have to pay freight charges and usually only buy off bigger dealers, where the big dealers buy direct from Ford Melbourne
