What's the cost of the part? It's completely useless but completely cool!

The part retails for around $4.00. It was something we found looking through the EPC and gave it a shot. They have many different languages but we figured German was the best. Let me know if you would like the extra one I have. by the way, the stock one is a PITA to get off.

OT:

Is "Kraut" considered offensive when referring to a German? I heard that "Canuck" is akin to calling an American a "Yankee" ... not really offensive, but a little bit of a jab. Is this the same?

I thought "Canuck" referenced a Canadian (grew up in Michigan).

Sorry, let me be more clear with my text:

Is "Kraut" considered offensive when referring to a German? I heard that "Canuck" to a Canadian is akin to calling an American a "Yankee" ... not really offensive, but a little bit of a jab. Is this the same? A Kraut is just a little jab?

"Kraut" is probably offensive to supersensitive/insecure germans. Like "rice" is to some asians.

I mean no offense to them personally or their families.

Some mods deserve a "kraut" label in my opinion. Some products deserve a kraut label... like certain 2002s, Bavarias, and things like this for example:



End of off topic/ToadFly discussion.
