I stopped in to buy a filter for my wife's '07 MINI Cooper S. As the parts guy handed it to me he said that will be $24.95. I explained to him I only needed one, not three. Surely that price must be for three?

That's alright. I stop by and drink their free Starbuck's coffee a couple of times a week. Sometimes they even have a doughnut. I'm getting even a little at a time.

While compared to my Explorer's Fram filter the smart one is pricey but its still better than a new engine later in life (I know I'm weird I keep cars for 8 or more years).

If you want to touch up the paint on the safety cell I overheard it as being standard Mercedes Black (so the silver might be std. Mercedes silver?).
It is powder coated not painted I got charged $30.11 for the same thing you got a bargain.

Shiny powder coat? Never seen that... just going by what the dealer said b/c there were scratches from the genius trucking company on my Tridion cell.
