Can I complain to SOA 'bout the dealer charging too much?

I was charged $22.43 a piece for iridium spark plug #22401AA630 for my FXT, labor $168. Ouch!

A google search can find a set of 4 for $50.

What a rip.

    Good reason to buy some tools and a good shop manual. ;)

    That markup sounds pretty normal, actually.

    Another good reason to find a reliable local mechanic who charges less. Dealers make the majority of thier income from the service area, not sales. They are going to sell you on what ever they can. I only go to a dealer if it is a warranty related issue.
