BigAlBre , I know you didn't ask me, but those are Double Fives. You can find them used fairly reasonably too; they don't cost near what Sepangs, Montreals or Detroits cost; and are fairly easy to...

We've been into OEM versus aftermarket debates before here. The big savings is doing your own labor, it's easily saved me 15-20k in 9 years of x100 ownership. These cars are relatively easy to work...
