Holy smokes, didn't know how bad they are at some things.....<p>Sent my buddy down to local dealer. 1 turbo outlet gasket, and 3 new dp nuts.<p>He comes back, total was around $45 bucks. Whoa one expensive gasket was my first thought.<p>After looking at the reciept they charged only $8 for the gasket but get this....<p>The nuts were $11 and change EACH!!!! Can you F-in believe this? $11.xx for 1, yes ONE 13mm nut. Whoa.<p>Needless to say those 3 nuts are going back for refund next time i'm near there. Damn.

The nuts have a special coating that can survive re-entry <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Maybe Volvo should have used some of that "special coating" on other internal parts. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>-Eric<br>
