Last lot of oil filters for the 2.8l diesel pajero (2.8) at repco cost me $28.00 ea. a few months ago.
Rang up today to check the price for some more (1 left) and they told me $44.00 ea.
Ouch!
Quoted the old figure and I was told I must have got them for trade price.
Asked if I could quote an ABN number? Yes
OK the reply, they are $30.00 ea. for cash over the counter with an ABN.

Didn't think trade price got that good a discount :-)
Looks like I will buy them that way in future.

Yesterday I replaced an air filter for my bus and yes it is a Toyota Coaster but the air filter is a Nissan something.

Repco didn't have it so they ordered it in for me $30.00 and I thought I'd just check that they ordered the right part for me as they weren't 100% sure about it, so I dropped into Nissan and they had the exact filter for $16.00

Is that 53% cheaper? That's what I make it out to be.

No trade or nothing. Just the right part from the actual manafacturer. Who would of thought?

Now if you want to save 20% on goodies ...sign up as a member with Supercheap auto on their web page, get a 20% discount voucher and then go round and buy up the 'shop' ...and then tell me if this is not a good deal !!!...probably best if you buy big ticket items ...oils etc..

Steve, Have signed up but can't find anywhere that mentions the 20% voucher.
Where exactly did you find that bit.

Old plodder, I have found in the past that when I buy direct from Nissan for the needs of my Patrol, I am getting around 4 to 5 dollars per filter (Fuel, oil and air) off the RRP from SUPERCHEAP. I use that term loosly. Repco have givien me some good deals in the past but I found that the origainals from the dealership were cheaper again. I have no idea about Mitsubishi prices but if they are charging alot for the parts required for general maintenance, you have to ask yourself the question. WHY?

Thanks everyone for the responses, and apologies for being late in getting back, my normal compter has been playing up on the internet connection.

Used to use superchesap, particularily on boxing day 20% off everything specials, and spend a few hundred dollars on oil and filters for the year.

But this price from repco is cheaper again. It seems to me that supercheap are cheaper for the fallcon/commondore type stuff, but not the parts a little different.
SC work out at $35.00 with 20% discount, while repco are $30.00 with ABN.

Still find repco price cheaper than Mitsubishi :-).
