Ripco. How do they get away with their exorbitant prices??
For example, they're selling this filter for $27!! The Mahle filter, for comparison, costs just ~$6.40 (converted to NZD) on FCP euro. The Repco junk has about 1/3 less filter material than the Mahle and is made in Indonesia. Mahle is made in Austria. The holes on the thread side of the filter are also larger on the Mahle, I can only assume this helps the oil flow better.
Repco also tried to charge me $40 for 1m of fuel line, what a joke. Went to Supercheap, $12 per metre.
I'm sure this kind of thing doesn't only exist in the automotive industry. And people wonder why they're losing business to online sales from overseas...
Ignore the sawdust on the used Mahle, it's been sitting in the workshop.
Needless to say I will be returning the Ripco filter.
