Re: Renault Modus Oil Filter
If you knew the mark-up on engine oils you would be surprised for how little a bulk order can be bought for.
For instance my local motor factors can beat any online price on 5 litre containers and he still makes a hefty profit. Same goes for
filters as long as they ain't specials.
I'll give you a recent example. I needed a few H4 headlight bulbs and he was able supply them for £1-00 plus VAT each. If I was prepared to buy a box of 10 the price dropped even much more and I don't have the buyiong power of a large chain.
Most retailers were asking £3-50 and much more at certain oultlets.
