I'm not saying that no one charges that rediculous price -- I'm just saying you've got to be a complete and utter moron to pay it.

fatty is an unknown quantity at this point
when i was looking for mine, i found because it fitted a BMW the price went up.

so on my 328 i used a filter off a Ford Sierra Cosworth and the pipe adapter from a Ford Escort XR3i and some pre heat pipe from my local Auto spares store.....

grand total...... 65.00
