I now buy everything online from Pelican or eBay and do the easy stuff myself (e.g the charcoal cabin filter is a 10 minute job with 1 screw, and shouldn't cost you more than about $30!), or take the more complex parts to my mechanic and just pay for the labour.
Thanks man.

Are you referring to activated charcoal filter.. the one I was charged for $378?

I really would like to learn how to do all these minor servicing myself next time. Anyone knows where to get some reading materials?
