Many dealer parts departments are a bunch of crooks. When I can buy a tire valve cap for $1.75 at the dealer where I purchased my car and then the dealer 30 miles away charges $0.49 for the same cap, you know I don't spend anything on parts/accessories at the dealer where I got my car.
It's just ridiculous how much some dealers mark up their parts prices.
