An piece of mind. They are $50k+ cars so what is another 10-20% in cost in terms of having a part/mod that doesn't break or have to be re-fitted by the tuner 10x to get it to work as advertized. Folks were telling me to spend $400-500 on H&R Springs or Eibachs and then IF my EDC acted up just to go ahead and remove it; take it to the dealer and get it replaced under warranty and then put the springs back on!
SO let me get this one right....an EDC spring is about $700 job I hear in parts/labor from last service quote I hear/saw...and any shop will charge me at least $200 to remove the offending spring and then another $200 to re-install the new set. So somebody tell me after $400-500 for non Dinan Performance springs and then $200 for install and another $150 for alignment and oh yeah another $200 to uninstall any problem springs/replace the EDC ones...WHERE am I saving any significant $$ over the Dinan deal I go on my performance set? I even got 15% off my Dinan set plus another 5% matched by my Dinan shop on install and parts on top of what Dinan wa giving!
