Lets clear things up here a bit. ESS is selling their 575 kit right now with the polished black manifold for $8,990 (which is their sale price). Add tax and you are at $9776.63
. This does not include installation. If your local shop gives away 6-8 hours of install labor for free, then lucky for you.
I'm selling my kit for $6,800 and you still need to buy software which is about $1000. I'm not sure if you need to pay tax on it, but for the sake of being fair lets add that. Total cost for my kit is $7,887.50
So a new kit will cost $9,776.63 and my kit will cost $7,887.50. That's a 20% savings right there. And if you must add $1000 in labor to buying my kit the savings is still 10%. All for a kit that has been on my car for 3000 miles, exactly 2 months, and has seen 4 track days in that time.
Can you give details on who is selling the kit for $8,295 (+ $1000 for paint) installed? Is there no tax involved? Seems like everyone on this forum should jump on that deal if it's that good for a new kit.
