    You are paying for the name and you are paying for quality -- like they said, great stuff, just not great if you are on a budget. I would go with individual pieces though and stay away from the staged packages.

    Nice Kill! I hate when guys are sore losers though...

    I chose to go with a Momo shift knob over a Prodrive knob when it came right down to it.

    I agree with staying away from the staged packages. They all seem VERY conservative, and very expensive. If I buy prodrive stuff, it's used. Got the axleback for 250 shipped, and its amazing.

    I have seen some of their wheels in person, excellent products, I plan on getting a set myself as well as their WR Sport muffler. That's all the personal experience I have with any of their products, but like they said above, you can't go wrong with a company that makes rally cars.

    personally, i think they're pretty good products, but if I were looking for information on the subject, i don't think i'd be looking in the 'wrx vs. the world' forum. *hint*

    I have 18" Prodrive P1 wheels. Extremely strong wheels, but they are a little heavier than some. Aheineken: what size/style prodrive wheels you looking at?
