The grouping of parts is a common ploy by manufacturers to maximise their earnings from spares whilst simplifying their stock room. Instead of having 100 parts in individual boxes, you have just 10 boxes with 5 to 15 parts in each box.
I needed a reflector bowl for the headlight on my bike, a simple bit of concave silvery plastic with a hole in the centre for the bulb. Got to cost less than a fiver to manufacture.
But no! I have to buy the whole feckin' headlight: outer chromed cowl, inner bowl, bulb, wires, retainer clips, lens, securing rim, fastener screws, support bracket and fixing bolts. Total cost almost 200 quid. This, allegedly, is "customer support".
