So I guess that thread a few weeks ago was inaccurate. It's not r&d or reliability that is the ultimate factor, its price..
Also, I don't recall a price being announced, seems like some people just want to bash.. how surprising..
Not sure if these are directed at me or not but I will reply.
Sure I own an M3. I did not buy the car for fuel efficiency either. That's not to say I don't wish it had waaaay better fuel efficiency (and it could have and that would have made it a better car).
As far as my aftermarket parts go I buy most of them very lightly used. I let some one else take the huge hit and pay the exorbitant "BMW tax". Then I swoop in and get them used. I just won't pay what most vendors want for parts. They are not worth it to me. Sure I can afford it but consider it somewhat wasteful. Looking for good value and low prices is not synonymous with "cheap" or "tight ass".
Either way neither myself nor other posters were really complaining about the price. We don't know that yet. We were more commenting on the manufacturing engineering and hoping that it would be manufactured in the least expensive way possible with those savings passed to potential buyers. Unfortunately it appears it will not be so and this kit will be priced at the top end of the market. All I can say is good luck to Evolve selling them.
