    Well, some are OEM switches--which always carry a premium--and others are aftermarket, which can vary in quality from just as good to carp. I have had good success with Sierra products, in general, but cannot vouch for ignition switches specifically.

    Also, do you need the whole panel, or just the switch? Maybe a generic switch could be made to fit into your panel?

    A switch like this--no panel, no wiring, no logo on it, is $15.

    Eventually I paid US$130.00 + US$39 Import duty = US$ 169.00 each.

    Wallet still hurts.
