Hmmmm....As a guide realoem.com comes up with a price of $472 just for the housing and filter, so he is probably not to far out on his price if he's getting genuine parts, however are you sure its not just the 'O' ring and top cover ??? was on mine and I had oil everywhere and thought damn the housings cracked, got a new ring and cap, fine ever since, $10.00 and 5minutes,oil loss when you take the old cap off 1/2 cup.
