Thought Ferrari filters were Expensive - How about your house?
Changing the filters in my house. I've got 5 filters in my house. 1 for oil, 4 for water. The oil filter for the furnace is $13. Not too bad. Now we get to the water. I have a sediment filter off the pump. That filter is $20. Now the water going to the refrigerator has an inline charcoal filter that costs $13. The refrigerator itself has a filter that costs $50 (but I found one online for $34). Then I've got this boiling water dispenser on my sink for making instant coffee and noodles and stuff and it also has a $30 filter.
So for me to change the filters in my house is over $100. At least I have the knowledge that the ice in my drink is made from the cleanest water money can buy. The water you buy at the store is not as clean as the water that comes out my ice maker.
So whenever someone complains that the oil filter for their 6-figure Ferrari costs $50 you can say that's not too bad considering that's the same price as the filter for my $2,000 Frigidaire.
