I really don't want this to become a 944 discussion group, but we keep ours 
running by dealing with aftermaket and discount dealers who advertise in 
Hemmings. Sometimes the parts are a third of what the dealers want. This goes 
for any car.

I have a 75 Jaguar XJC  ( the coupe.)  I don't really care for it , but it is 
rare. A couple of years ago I developed a leak in the Master Cylinder.  The 
Local Jag. dealer wanted $350 for the part. A mile away the local foreign car 
discount store wanted $225. I looked in Hemmings, and saw an add for $110.  All 
were for the same orig. equip. part.
