No need to introduce me as I did it years ago when I opened my account here.
I know there's a lot of hate about the flares reproduction and whatnot.
There's so many thing to discuss that I'll just start with what I think of and you can comment on **** I said.
First of all, you can say whatever you want against CR.net but guy open your ******* mind. There are turbo guys, there are supercharger guys, there are naturally aspirated guys. More "stance suspension and sportmax" guys hangs at CR.net. More 6UL guys hangs on there. Hey, it's just common sence not to arrive like this:
at a black people reunion...
For the knock off part. You guys seem not to care at all. Why is TRUST going bankrupt ? Probably not because of people did knock off of all their lineup and now they don't have enough funds to do R&D anymore.
Let me show you some things that could just happen anytime soon if we continue like that. Harris stuff are going to get bought by a guy. That guy will send his parts to Mexico. Then they will come back at $100 less and that one guy will make money off Harris work (as I see he was making a hood). How would you feel about that ?
How about Emilio's 6UL being copied and sold for $380 a set shipped ? I'm sure that would affect the **** out of his business and he would probably not release any new wheels models as his money would have been gone to a guy in his basement that shipped one of his wheels to a Chineese factory.
Hey, I'm not telling anyone here how to act or react. I know many of you hates me because I sell JDM parts over expensive and make a million dollars off your asses. This is not the case... the parts are just expensive to begin with and they ship from the other side of the world.
Again, I'm not telling anyone how they should spend their hard earned cash. I know many of you can't justify spend $700 on a set of flares or $2000 on a set of wheels. Everyone has his budgets and chose if he wants the quality, the quantity or the exclusivity. No need to comment on that last sentence, people are like that, we're not communists.
Where I'm going at is GUYS, the industry is falling under counterfeit products and the new and hot parts are rare to come across. Instead of encouraging a guy that just bought a piece and made a mold of it, why don't you guys buy parts from people like Mike @ Autokonexion ? This guy is from USA, he works his *** off to develop JDM inspired parts and very original products. You don't have to wait neither. The quality is there AND you're helping the industry.
Oh well, I'm not a dictator, but guys, do whatever you want but instead of coping ****, just inspire yourself or improve the product. By improving the product I'm not talking about changing the material.
I know you guys will probably bitch the **** out of this post, have fun doing it, I'll try to come back and read the replies. I don't have time to argue, so I'll just read your stuff.
From the guy that brings the cool **** to the US,
***EDIT*** God damn I'm a '06
***EDIT 2*** Please stop the false marketing advertisement. 6 months wait ??? Usually the part is in stock in Japan and arrives in 3 to 5 days at the customer's home. It's called air shipping.
