dealer isnt that bad, at least for me it wasn't. I had to get one of these about a year ago and the dealer had em for about 35 bucks.

I agree the dealer isn't as bad as you think for some parts.

Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I was expecting the dealer to overcharge. (bad experience)

I've got a few parts(engine computer, fuel pump) and both times I paid around the same for the part as if I'd bought it at a parts place just a little difference in price due to labor but I know the service manager at my dealer so it makes better for me.

Yup just called the dealership out here in San Diego, they charge $57.07 for the front driver cap I am missing. I don't know anyone who works at Cadillac so I'm screwed. :/ oh well time make sure their on tight hot glue them or something

That's better then having to get the whole rack.

I don't recommend hot glue cuz it will melt out in the sun especially on the roof

I went to the dealer they quoted me at 57.07 over the phone show up today they said total is 160.00 because they can't sell me just the cap it has to be the the kit. I said wtf what about u guys telling me $57.07 over the phone he said no idk who told U that but it comes to 160.00 plus tax. >:/

That sounds like someone is wanting a big commission (give Chris a pm at rippypartsdept) he is good for parts prices.
