funny how few years ago there crap CSL replica trunks that didn't fit right for the E46 were only a few hundred, which was fine then bc they were cheap but now fast foward to the present and all of a sudden they charge thousands for there stuff and i really haven't seen the quality go up that much to justify that kind of price increase

and that whole body kit for 25k thing don't even get me started on that

they should go back to the old pricing bc i don't see anything special in the products in my opinion but hey to each there own but i wouldn't go around bragging that i had a vorsteiner product on my 70k car

Although I know Vorsteiner has had some product problems/weaknesses I am extremely impressed with the build quality (and acoustics) in my Vorsteiner exhaust. I don't care if it is made in Taiwan, China, Mexico or the US.

Vrs diffs look good except that at high speeds the front diff gets stone chipped to fuck and you have to keep going over it with clearcoat.
And yes... well overpriced.

whats really awesome about vorsteiner is how they bitch out replica makers and buyers yet their foundation is based on replicas.

Wait til you see the new spliters they are releasing
