It cost $32.99 including shipping, fits perfectly and is identical in size to the original bolts. It took me about five minutes to locate the supplier (I posted a message at SaabNet) and it took me two minutes to place the call. No sweat. No problem. No hassle. Saved me $50 USD. A "fair price", IMHO, is not double the typical retail price. Saab is just robbing its customers with this item. John Davies Monroe WA USA
