Default Beat this Black Friday deal

So I was looking around craigslist the other night like I always do for some miata parts when I stumbled across an interesting ad. There is a shop local to me that was having a black friday sale. They were selling all their inventory which consisted of rims, tires, steering wheels, suspension parts ect. So i decided to hope in the car and drag my buddy along for the almost hour drive. I figure what can it hurt to look seeing as I have been looking for rims.

We get there and someone hands me a price list and a piece of paper and says if you see something you like in the warehouse put an offer down on the paper and hand to a salesperson and we will let you know if the boss accepts it. Well to make a long story short I found a set of 15x7 (even though I wanted 15x8's ) hyper black Rota RB's, so I shoot an offer that I think has no way of being approved to the owner. The sales guy comes back and says you are good to go. I am kinda shocked. $200.00 for a new set of RB's. I mean I was ready to offer double that for an out the door price. So im like I gotta look around some more to see what else I can get.

All in all I got a momo devil steering wheel for 80 bux. A momo leather gear shift **** for 30. and a set of 205/50/15 Falken azenis rt-615-K' for $360.00
I was very pleased to say the least. The place is called JLB Motorsports in Carona, and I will be going back to them for more stuff in the future. If anyone lives in so cal they should look them up. Justin the owner is really cool and although he does not have these smoking deals year round he has some really good prices and great service.

Here is a pic of my new buy.

I found a paypal reciept on the bottom of one box that said the rims sold for 490 bux to a guy in Texas. By the way the car handles so nice now. I was running 190/60/14's and I thought the car handled well with that set up. Wow what a difference.

I can tell you that dealer pricing is more than $200 for that set.
Good deal for sure.
