I think there are deals on PS2's now since the PS3 is about to come out.

I'm driving around my beater until I can find the willpower to drop $1,200 on new PS2s. Loved them so much I'm going with them again.
If you can get them for $1,200 that's a good deal. Might as well wait for PS3s now.

Edit: I was thinking 19s, which are $1,474/set on TR.

I think it was STALKER who found a good deal on them. He didn't post a price.

Does not work with an already flush set up. I'll have to cut down the spacers by 5mm.

Wow - 23k! My rears made it to < 12k :-D Hoping to get 20-22k on fronts. Dunno about the PS3's- I'd rather have better dry performance ...
