So I guess the next obvious million dollar question is......do you use a Wix oil filter?

Damn...that is impressive!!!

Hey Wicks, does that CUshopper still exist? I work for a credit union and if I remember correctly, a few years back, I think they knocked on our doors and introduced cushopper services to us. I'm not sure if that is the right company though...

Chris - I think you'd have to open it up beyond coverage of D90s. If you developed the site so it had a borader forum, lots of advertising opportunities and were able to attract the broad Land Rover market (U.S), you might be able to get traction as a business. WOuld have to be the place people ended up who were looking for accessories for their NRRs, etc. so talking prety deep penetration. Might be a tough go.

WIX filters - no - can't stop using Genuine otherwise I'd try one out.

Glenn - that indeed must have been one of our regional managers in your area. We had signed up 2,000 credit unions at the peak of the business, including BEFCU, Pentagon and most of the biggies. Did more profitable business though with the smaller guys.
