Dude. Just bought mine from sewell for 24-26 bucks each. Insalled myself in 10 minutes. Use the search button. Could've saved you $75 Bones-

That is ridiculous.....Ask him if you got a sign on your forehead that says "SUCKER".

It'll take at most 2 minutes to swap out the A/C filter.

Dont shoot the messenger, he is only sharing with you what the dealer told him. As you can tell, he is suprised himself.

I wouldn't even pay the stealership for the filters!! Go to Home Depot or somehwere, buy the best Hepa filter you can find (like $10), and cut out your own cabin filter...you get 4-8 from each filter, depending on the size you started with.....forget the dealer...

there is only one cabin/ac filter. I say buy a factory one from sewell and put it in yourself very simple.

$100 penalty for a GS owner who doesn't read his owner manual or visit CL to learn about this easy DIY

And I thought paying $50.00 bucks to change the air in my tires was a great deal!
before I found out that they have free self-serve air at Gas stations!

Lol, I said they wanted to charge me. I've already read about changing cabin filters, I just asked my dealer about it since my car was in getting my amp and speakers replaced. On;y thing I have on my forehead is the permanant scar from my Grandma's coffe table hahahahahahaha.

That dealership belongs in the Hall of Shame! If I were you, I'd find another dealer for all future service. The fact that they wanted to charge u 100 bucks leads me to believe that they are a greedy bunch and not to be trusted with anything.

Well they did roll my mileage back in their computer so my amp and speakers where under warranty. They saved me over $700.
