No I know I definitely won't be spending that kind of money on the Kappas. The whole point of this was really to get a feel for what people like, the different setups, experiences / advice / opinions, whatever. So all of these responses have seriously helped me out in that regard.

The holidays always suck when you're itching to buy parts for your car
