Some Prova merchandise is overpriced **** labeled as Prova. (Not in anyway am I saying Cobb products in general are ****. I just mean stuff in general)

Case in point.
Cobb AccessPort
http://jprova.co.jp/products/electro...00000qoy4.html
131,250 = $1700

Cobb/Mode Adjustable short shifter
http://jprova.co.jp/products/drivetr...00000ql70.html
30,450 = $395

Hmm those wheels seem like a fairly generic design and in black you can't really see the detail. Seems like a cheaper set of 19s with an STI or BBS sticker or whatever would have the same effect?

Once you start seeing something on stock cars, it is officially played out, i.e. black wheels and flat paint.

Just because you guys can't afford to spend 5k on wheels doesn't mean he can't, stop telling him he can't afford it and point him where to find them if you know, not everyone wants cookie cutter $2,000 volks on their car, lots of high end rims end up around the 5k mark.

When did we say he couldn't have them/afford them? We said be prepared for a high cost.

We've listed the most probable source for those wheels 4+ times....

$2000 volks? Show me where these are.

Any Volks worth owning on our cars start at $800....a wheel.

Lol 5000 for a set of "high end" wheels is actually low

You should try more around 20k for a set of "high end" wheels

Ffs I've seen wheels that sell for a qm per set of 4

^^ I used to work for a motorsports vendor here in the NW, and would carry the magnesium BBS CH's (center lock). Those sold for $4k/wheel.

Ok not new, but used Volks sell for around $2000 all the time. I laugh everytime I see people try to sell used Volks for near retail price in the classifieds. Of course you just have to be patient.

I'm sure Rota will be ripping off the design any day now.

Just wait for those, right?

Thanks for being a good lil secretary and fixing my typos... next time.. I would prefer my coffee hot, not warm and my sammiches (intentional spelling) with SWISS not american cheese...

I love y'all NASIOC Nazi-selling biotches... such good cleaner-uppers...Since spelling is SOO much more important than directing people to post in the correct forum/thread... DA

Rota Grids, save $4000.00, use the leftover budget for go-fast parts. Done.
