I know a few of you find it hard to believe, but some people do like to buy specific parts. Having aftermarket parts installed isn't exactly an unheard of request.
We make money on parts as part of our means of paying the bills. We also warranty parts that we provide because we have a say in the parts quality.
Once again, good luck. Maybe you will find somebody that is close to going out of business and they will be desperate to get any money they can get their hands on. I tell people who bitch about my parts prices that the price they pay at the local parts store is the do it yourself price.
