Wow that's a lot of mark-up. I would order it straight from Hyundai.
0.11 cents... Mark-up? Highway robbery perhaps...lol!

Welcome to what we have to deal with in Australia. Parts are cheap as chips overseas, but then shipping is either equal to or greater than the price of the part a lot of times. Especially if the seller ships via courier only. Damn international shipping.

Can’t find the part at a salvage yard? Lots of other vehicles have the exact rubber bumper that will fit. How did you lose the original part?
While drying my Wife's Optima after washing it one of the bumpers came off and bounced into the grass - couldn't find the @##% thing so I was looking up the part number...and couldn't believe the prices on ebay!!!! :oops:

Never! I don't do that...
However, sometimes I find them suddenly in my tool box...:)

off topic...back when dinosaurs roamed and I used to frequent wrecking yards for parts I found that certain "A" body GM cars had "pockets" in the sides of the seats where lost coins used to collect - it was hidden from most car owners. I used to collect so much "coinage" that I would use it to pay for my picked salvaged parts...lol!

Most of the time the cashier knew what I was doing...:devilish:

Find any illegal substances mixed in with the change? Police sometimes overlook the obvious places to stash certain substances. Team Green.
