Price is kind of high considering the buyer needs to buy a tune too. So a ~$500 discount from brand new accounting for the tune isn't worth it IMO for a used kit

The 550 kit replaced the 535. They released that data Monday I believe, as well as price reductions.

That's because they no longer make the 535 kit. It's now a refined version of that kit with some new software and a few changes (i believe and could be wrong) and they call it a 550 kit.

FYI the 550 kit is not the same hardware as the 535. The 550 comes with a smaller pulley which makes more boost. I know this for sure because I upgraded my 535 to a 550 and ESS sent me the newer pulley with matching belt.

FWIW, I bought a slightly used 535 kit directly from ESS just before they announced the new 550 kit. After speaking with Roman, I arranged to swap the 535 pulley and belt for the ones on the 550 kit. I compared the pulleys and they are definitely not the same size. Also, the 550 runs more boost which isn't possible with just software. Regardless, swapping the pulley and belt isn't that expensive so this kit could be upgraded easily if the new owner wished, assuming it doesn't already have the smaller pulley.

Good luck with the sale!
