If you think that's expensive you should have seen what the GAB bars used to cost.

I'd be a little skeptical of those since they're discontinued.

^? I have always thought that things are discontinue when demand drops below a certin level. I would think a 15 year old car has reached that level by now.

I have seen them go for more then that. That is only the front in the auction in less I missed something.

I bought them, couldn't let another set slip away. That really isn't a bad price, that is how much the Whteline ones are and I had a set of Whiteline's and they looked as cheap as all the generic bars. The Cusco's are the only ones I have ever seen that I have liked.

FYI: Peter that was just for the front bar but I agree the Whiteline Strut bars are not worth what they cost.

When they get there, let us know if you think they're 100% genuine or if they look like nock-off's. Last time I tried to source them there wasn't a single distributor in the US that had any and they weren't being made anymore so I'm wondering where they came from?

I will let you guys know as soon as I receive them, here is what Z1 Performance said to me when I asked about them being discontinued.

"I guess people were under the impression they are no longer made, and it's not the case. We are the largest volume Cusco dealer in the US, and as such, can offer anything that Cusco makes quite easily."
