And what do you get? ****ty coilovers
i'm not "cheaping" out on my car to mod it for the sake of saying i have a modded car.
i'm doing what i see is fit based on my budget, and i believe it is very reasonable to buy BimmerBrakes Headers for 250$ instead of 2000$ for SS Headers. i don't have a deep pocket, and i invest in what i do to get the best reliable parts for the budget i set
at first when ebay headers were selling for 60-70$ everyone criticized them until they where proven to be good headers (from certain sellers of course).
not everything is measured by their price tags and of course looking for cheap-er items is sometimes risky, but i'm investing based on other people's experience, and building custom parts when i can...
