I'm reminded of an episode of I Love Lucy. Lucy and Ethel buy a dress shop and find they have no business. Lucy suggests cutting the prices by 50%. "Sure we'll lose money on each dress but we'll make it up in volume."

That's pretty much what they're going for after negotiation.

Nope that's a stage 2 intake, APR has a bigger MAF housing for stage 3.

But IF it ACTUALLY was full stage 3 plus the suspension and wheels that would be close to $15k in parts, plus labor there's at least $20k.

Dealer must be smoking the same crack as Mayor Ford.

Where does this guy get off asking that much? Does he think it's Canada, where our dealers wanted $44K for those cars in 2012?

Wheels look legit, they are not expensive BBSs to begin with. Around $500/corner on TR.

edit: I take it back, they do kinda look like reps..

doubleedit: definitely cheap reps lol
