Re: It really pays to research what you need
Congrats. These examples can and do happen. Some just gouge. Although, it can be understandably related to selling these small pieces in low quantities and the cost of sitting on the inventory, along with the payroll to process can be a significant percentage of the price. Some may also be trying to encourage an alternative, like replacing the entire light.
However, what also happens is the OEM specs a different material for their product that isn't as obvious to the eye. Maybe more UV resistant as an example.
