air filter

hi guys...anyone know where i can get a new air filter for my 2011 jeep compass...i just asked "Palmer's jeep" and they said it is £95.00...£95!!!!!!!...that is daylight robbery!!...it is only a simple piece of rubber and cardboard..i have just paid £354(inludes VAT), for a water pump...how can jeep get away with charging these rediculous prices?!...its getting like one needs a second mortgage to run a jeep..i was recently wanting an annual service and MOT, and they wanted to charge me £950!!...rediculous...i understand that they have overheads, but this is rediculous..they charge £144 ph, labour.

can anyone help on getting an air filter for less than this..there must be cheaper

cheers team

just bought the filter from Amazon, there is a black foam one in at the moment, and this is a direct replacement...Palmer's jeep?...£95...exactly the same part,( right part number too)...amazon £34.95...incredible, almost 3 times more expensive from a jeep specialist.
due to this, i will be selling my old reliable jeep, and get a make and model with better parts and service prices.....i will not be buying a jeep again, shame, she is a great car.

I haven't bought any routine items like filters from an actual store for many years. I've been ordering from Parts Avatar (in Canada) for years and overall the prices are a quarter to a third of local stores pricing. I like that I can order whatever I need on a Monday or Tuesday and it will certainly arrive before the weekend when I need it. I just ordered two parts, free shipping, and they arrived the next day.
