I think I understand a little bit about business. I've had my own in one form or another for over 30 years. But thanks for the explanation.

At least Shiv gave me a courtesy laugh. Comedy club here I come.

haha, sorry about that. I misinterpreted your post. I will stop writing books.

I don't drink,smoke,eat in my car, ever. And I don't hold the hand of my GF of her thigh or anything else unless there is traffic or stoped in a traffic light. When the car moves, I'm meant to drive it both hands... and god I do it with pleasure

How much more economic do you want it? 50hp of $1300! $26 per HP. That is one of the most economic performance upgrade I have seen. Check the M3, around $600 for an Intake and less than 15Hp? that would be $40 per Pony (HP). I don't know, but maybe I am wrong. However, I still think it is pretty cheap. 50Hp and 70 Torque for 1300 ist sehr gut!

I'll gladly pay $900 for 30HP and 40lbft at the wheels. Don't need this much extra power, so why pay for all of it?

Any word on when/how much the price increase is going to be? I don't get my car in the US until mid-June, so I'd rather wait to order if the price increase is small.

Hey Shiv,

How about a ****** that doesn't improve HP/TQ or performance at all for only $200??

OR..........a REcede that lowers performance (although not by much) for $50.

If he is selling out @ $1,300 why would he make a cheaper version? Maybe in a few years when sales drops.
