    30?

    they are 11.65 at Hondaautomotiveparts.com, and will be around 15.55 at the dealer. Call up other dealers in your area. I have one in my area that always has more in stock, however, has yet to fail, is always $10 more the other dealer 10 miles away.

    well in that case, I would say go with OEM. When I did mine, I first bought one from autozone. The thing didn't fit right at all, and I ended up leaking all over. I then took it back and bought a OEM honda one, and the fit was perfect. Also, from what I have read, the OEM one seams to be most acurate (opens up at the right tempature).
