way to make me feel good about it... j/k
ive never had high performance tires, or even tires on anything bigger than a 15 inch rim, and ive never had a car that handles this well and has this type of suspension. i bought the car used with these tires on it and just figured thats how it drove. now that i have some new ones i can feel a huge difference, but they are also the pilot exalto all weather model instead of the pilot sport z-rated ones i had on before. the tread was still pretty good but they said the inner walls were pretty ugly. anyway, the car handles better now and is a little softer/quieter on the road, and now i know how an STi SHOULD feel

If you cant find anybody to roll your fenders, there is always the do it yourself method.

Yeah but they are expensive as hell!!!!!
I asked them for a quote on KYB AGXs and they told me $1000!!!
I laughed and said you should get a new supplier.
+ installation of $500
yeah after I get things worked out with mine I will have spent much less than that.
But I have heard that they know their stuff.
They charged my mom $400 to install a new rear pass window motor in a GM car.
I thought that was too pricy! However no problems with the window.

They are a bunch of overpriced idiots.

I went in to talk to them about putting on an exhaust for my old old wagon and they said it was an all day job (there were no customers in front of me) that was going to cost me $370.

.. and if you remember correctly. The dar and I went home and did that in about an hour. For free.

He also bought nates WRB Sti.....

Never checked on pricing before other than the exhaust and I even forgot about that. In all reality, Honkey and I can do just about any repair job or mod on Subies just short of an engine or tranny rebuild.

Our labor rates are as follows:

1st hour: Lunch and your sisters #
2nd hour: STi seats
3rd hour +: WRX engine and tranny swap w/ a pair of said sisters panties.

TIA!
