Excuse me...his initial offer was for 2750 AUS...which comes out to $1997....which is within 50 bucks of the original purchase price...though the currency rate has shifted, 2k is still 2k.
I just got off the phone with him. He offered me a gear set for the same cost as the STi gears...I'm still debating this.
I figured I should clear that up. If that makes anything clear I don't know.
