    You seem to all be celebrating the fact that you found a bargain, when what it looks like to me is that, as usual, the marine parts people are charging insultingly high prices.

    Ditto - I get most of my Beta engine consumable spares from our local car spares distributor company. Although to be fair the Beta prices are not that bad a price.

    It's worse in aviation. The alternator on a Cessna 172 is the same as a Ford part except 10x the price. And you can't use the automotive one as everything has to be certified on a plane.

    I have to admit I'm a little lazy with filters. I just buy them all from www.inlinefilters.co.uk.

    I think you're 100% correct. There's also an argument that says buying from builders merchants or internet shops is killing the chandlers. I don't think there is an answer that's right or wrong. My original idea was to add a list of correctly priced items as a resource.

    I was going to say that most filters and engine parts are much cheaper from car spares shops/truck dealers or the local farm supplier.
