After a delay of a day I'm finishing off putting my car back together after changing the head gaskets. Noticed that the breather hose on the RH rocker cover to plenum was slightly split (or it was probably weak and split when I pulled it off). Cheap enough from Island 4x4 (https://www.island-4x4.co.uk/rocker-cover-breather-pipe-plenium-llh500090-err5038-p-5924.html) at under £2 but with postage that would probably put it up to nearer a tenner. Figured I may as well get one from LR as I would be able to order it from my local main agent and pick it up the next day, so checked their site. In stock and available, no problem, then I saw the price https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/llh500090-hose-assembly-breather.html?code=60977 for a 6 inch long pipe?????

makes the postage seem cheap, i ordered some shims for a vw engine from heritage motors (vw suppler), the shims were 20$ a set the postage was 25$ each as i needed two sizes , it's a piece of cardboard with 4 shims , about 4mms in thickness, would fit in a business envelope, showed up in a big box of fresh air with two pieces of cardboard rattling around in it and it cost over 50$ for postage, was charged twice for the postage but it arrived in one box . i will never order from them again .

What ?? £172 ?? First thought was the decimal point is off a couple of notches.... Second thought was typical 'Main Stealers'.....
