      It was on the only way to get the m3 style tails, the company that makes them wont ship outside the US......

      curt, I've been planning on getting those (in smoked/red), I found them on ebay a while back I think i only saw one vendor who carried those, i forget the ebay vendor name but i'll look it up later, wonder if it's the same place (if you were looking at the clear/red version, i think there are a few ebay stores that carry those)

      Hell yeah, FK's are where its at.
      hey wait now not EVERYONE... fk's is ok but really just 4 LQQKs & have a great lifetime warranty but they don't really performed that well so lets not brag about them too much..... B&G/shine/H&R/KW's are better brands IMO remember looks just count for 1 thing.....

      I think FK has redeemed themselves with their selection and quality of their Silverline series... Low/Stainless Steel/Lifetime warranty... It doesn't get much better than that. I haven't heard much negativity about them in the mk5 scene at least.
      I think they'll become a top contender amongst the "big guys" (H&R/KW..) in the years to come

      I think rob's talking moreso about the ride quality though. I'm sure they ride fine, but there's probably plenty of room for improvement.

      If H&R came out with something competitively priced I'd be all over it

      I don't autoX or race my car, so I don't really see the benefit of spending $1600 on a set of coils
      Otherwise I'd be going H&R + Rear Sway. But daily driving that would suck

      Its also interesting the FK Silverlines for Mk5's are sold out everywhere...which tells me they must be doing something right if demand > supply.
      Where's Justin to back me up in my business sense?
