Jason your forum is a SCAM.., STOP banning members for speaking the truth, STOP sucking vendor dick, who pay you. Be a man, not a punk, ya fucking jerk-off.

YOU WILL NEVER SHUT DOWN THE REAL NAPSTER!!!!!! .

Yeah but because this guy is a vendor he is ok but the guy who gets screwed is the customer because he gets banned and this doesn't help the rest of us. We should be able to hear the customers side.

When we are successful at doing this we pass the savings to our customers. We know that cars get older and cheaper and we have to always find ways to deliver a very high quality product at reasonable pricing.

The E46 M3 kits for example sells now for thousands less than it did years ago, it took time but over the years we were able to lower our production costs on it and we continue to even today.

Price lowers as the car ages and becomes more affordable and now adjustments are made to the "newer" clientel who is purchasing the car. This is economies of scale simply put. Same reason why an e46 is cheaper now than it was a few years ago. Yes you SC kits are the most affordable; but nothing is cheap on these platforms and I still think 10k for a SC is a wee bit high priced.. .And don't give me the whole paying for a buisness and r&d blah blah blah... that is the cost of doing business (overhead) and should be absorbed by the business and not passed to consumer. I deal w/ this shit on a daily basis and always tell guys to pound sand when they ask me for more money due to their location which costs money to maintain.

Well the plenum is a very expensive part which also depends on the material it's made from.... The carbon air box on mine is very pricey I guess. Also GPower has different spark plugs which are ridiculously expensive.

But as for being overpriced, I have to agree because I am the consumer
Although I have seen first hand what kind of work goes into the R&D side and you can understand why the price is so. Some companies can spend over £100k on R&D so think of how many kits they have to sell to get a return let alone a profit.

I live on earth thanks. And I have been very successful w/ in m world. My point is that in business ( i deal w/ paying people for services) every business owner I come across wants me to foot the bill for their lights/electric/overhead which are the costs of running a business. Not saying you can't charge a premium, but telling people years later that you're still paying for R&D which has been accomplished years ago or time and time again is not right.

+1

I own a manufacturing company, we spend at least half a million on equipment/machinery and we are a small family business, so we have to make our money from somewhere

read again; I am not discounting someone making a profit; I am; however, arguing the point that all you hear is, "oh it's R&D, I need to charge and bang you over the head". Sad part is half the people hear are sheep and just drop their cars off to a shop to get all the work done and pick it up and gladly pay a bill. Companies will charge the most they can willfully get, so in essence people in this community add to the problem as they are willing to spend it. You guys really think an X-pipe has tons of R&D and is worth $1,500?? C'mon, it's sad. I know from experience and have done ALL the work on my own car. Many others gladly pay for services as they couldn't change their own oil.

My point to this rant is that the BMW and specifically M tax is getting ridiculous w/ little justification.


Again its demand as well, people will charge X amount as long as they're are people they're willing to spend it.

And bringing up the 911 comparo is not correct. I am talking more along the lines of A/M companies/parts

you guys really think prices just drop for older platforms (meanwhile they're all using similar components) right lol. Only a fool would believe that. E46 m3 kits are now cheaper cause the cars are cheaper and the owners are now cheaper as the cars become more affordable. I mean, shit, it's pretty hard to sell a 12k SC kit for a car that now can be had for 15k right?


perfect example= IND/ m24 oil cooler which is ridiculously priced and meanwhile you could by a custom Mocal and just use AN fittings and lines for a HUGE discount.
