I used to have a full Honda MPE parts list on a disc with dealer prices, so just for giggles once I did costing of what my $15k motorbike would cost if purchased as individual spare parts.
$118k was the total  :o

I kind of get that you are paying for storage. A car gets built, and sold relatively quickly, so the ROI for the manufacturer is fairly short. But the parts get built and then might get stored for many many years until sold ?

Have seen them for a lot less than that, but yeh, serious coin.
There are a lot of later model 200 series with DPF problems which require new DPF’s, injectors and other bits.
Approx 10K in parts, but you can bet Toyota are not paying anywhere near that for them.

stolen from Ozbargain..

It has been a while since this was posted so just a reminder for those who didn't know it was available or to refresh your First Aid Certificate especially coming up to summer.

    It is a very important skill to have and if this helps save just one life, then the course has done it's job. This first aid course will provide you with an essential reference to help to identify the first aid appropriate in an emergency.

    Quick and easy to do. Just register, do the course and exam. You can even print out your certificate if that tickles your fancy!

    Please note that this isn't a replacement for the accredited course you need for certain occupations, but is a tool to help everyone being able to possibly save a life in the case of emergency. In the event of an emergency, always make sure someone calls '000' as well.


Note: havent looked at it yet, not sure how good it is etc.

Thanks for reminding us all Bird. I totally agree. I recently renewed my remote area first aid course which I do every three years.

This isnt a certificate course as such, but any first aid training can only be a good thing

You would drown in the condensation if it didn't freeze solid.

You'd wonder about that, wouldn't you, because it looks like a plastic bag ???

I assume though, that they have to be the real deal in some way ???

what about 37k for your new cruiser donk etc like someone here had to...

What I don’t understand is how some soft floor CT which are for all intents and purposes are a tent on a box trailer yet some manufacturers retail these things up to $40k. Then look at a motor vehicle like a Hyundai i30 or the like which are up to $15k cheaper and look at how many moving parts are in them and the engineering and factories required to build them and compare the price to the CT. I understand economies of scale but still you have to wonder.
