I had the same experience when I went to the dealership for a part for my VW
Rabbit. One part cost $16 and the same part cost $75. The difference being
one had the VW logo on the bag and it was made under union
contract(expensive). The other was not and had no logo on the bag. The
kicker was both pieces were made by the same shift of workers!
