Cars are both looking good. How do they handle the poor la roads now, is the suspension okay still?

they actually seem better quality than the stock links. you can try to self-install, but to me it wasn't worth it. took it to a local mod shop (http://flawlessmotorsport.com/)

Two sick cars, looks great. I bet the GTS is almost as fun to drive as the SL, lol. Wheels look good too. Those links are really a great idea, I think really its better than all the expense of say the renntech module. Could anyone point out the main advantages to getting this instead of the links? I can't think of any, except that you can set the height in the car.

car is coming end of this week and i cant wait!

i have already ordered a set of these links for the car!

Thanks for the help! you saved me from buying lowering modules that cost a few times as much as these.

me either. i almost bought the electronic modules but the price difference outweighed the 1 benefit.
i got both link kits and install on both cars for more than 50% less than just ONE electronic module purchase cost (not even including install $).

I find that to be unbelievable...

how can they justify the price of these things? Do they think we are all dumb?

I can't imagine that the circuit board and plastic box that it's in is too costly, and as to the software, ecu tunes are so over inflated its absurd..

They are just juicing us for the extra cash - as if more work goes in to tuning an sl63 over a c63, yet an increase in price is still justified..

Just the way I see it...if i were them, i would lower price and exponentially increase sales - so many of us would do that stuff if it was actually reasonable to do, but it isn't.

Beautiful car by the way!

Oh yeah its def. just markup, that module is a simple computer, nothing to it. And yeah, ecu tunes, that's pure labor, that's like a 1000% profit right there, it's really too bad.
