dude, I know. Point being the friggen cost of the part is the same for everyone. If the independent guy wants to make less on the part that's his call, but he's still paying the same price for the part.

As for VW buying Porsche, fair enough. It's still pretty amazing a smaller manufacturer like Porsche had the chance to buy a huge company like VW to begin with (at least the majority shares). VW now owns 50.1% of Porsche
