    I was hearing a weird noise coming from my car, so I was looking under it to see what it was ( I suspect it's a bad shock ). Anyway, I found a little black plastic thing shaped like a large hex nut. Had no idea what it was, but it had some etched on it. So I typed it into google. MAG INSTRUMENTS 408-000-022. Came up with this:

    MAG INSTRUMENT 408-000-022 Anti-Roll Lens Holder for AA Mini Maglite LIGHTING HOME GOODS

    No way this little piece of plastic is worth $700. Especially since it goes to a AA Maglite. Nor would someone leave something that expensive in my driveway. But it does look a lot like the picture, so that is what I have here. Anybody know anything about Maglites?

    Yeah, I saw that it could be had for about a $1.50, just not sure why that site has it for $700. I don't even have a Maglite.

    That's probably for a pack of 1000 or 500 or they just don't want to sell theirs. Did you have the car at the shop lately?

    No. I don't think it actually fell out of the car. I think it just ended up in my driveway because someone walking by dropped it or it was dropped from a passing car and bounced there.
