Wow, that's an amazing price from Schmiedmann. But doesn't do any good if they can't keep them in stock.

ECS definitely reputable, and they just bought Turner Motorsport.

You're looking at a 14 year old car with a bunch of mods. Tread carefully. As transportation, the decision makes no sense at all.
