I agree price shouldn't have been changed but FWIW these guys are the only ones that made something unique and different. These are definitely worth it IMO just for the looks alone.

Is there anywhere we can see installation instructions? I want these but want to see what I have to go through to install them.

I would like to be able to sell for $99-$129, but we simply can't. We only make 50 sets of these and at $150 we are making less than a 20% margin.

This is nothing to do with hype, we love doing this, so the money is not the issue here. We are not here trying to make a quick bux.

Install pictures coming out today. Thanks guys

Darwin,

Don't sweat the price.....though it ain't cheap, neither was your time, the idea (which no one else came up with) nor the production. I'm a businessman, I'm in manufacturing, so I know all the nightmare hassels you guys have to deal with....not to mention dealing with us forum members, the ultimate pains in the asses

Give me a bit, but probably I'm down for this, if for no other reason than to reward a vendor for coming out with something cool in a smaller production run, rather than the same old crap most guys come out with.

Cheers,
e46e92

It would be pretty killer to see the +/- filled with glow in the dark paint.

When people put $6,000 rims and $5,000 exhausts on their cars 2 bills for better paddles that you can easily install yourself seems fine to me. It is one of the things I’ll order first after I get mine, that and the IND appearance package.

Just got mine in the mail. Could not be easier to install. Just a heads up you need to pop the airbag out by doing both sides at once. Will post pics later. Thanks Cal

Installed mine. The airbag was a PITA. The diy shows the screwdriver pointing upwards. Thats incorrect tou actually have to push in horizontal towards the airbag. After that it was easy and they are amazing. The feel is two times better, i love the feedback and design. Best mod yet
