Wow! I just asked the question since this was billed as a cheaper alternative to the old group buy, but it seemed the prices increased. I even asked to be corrected if I was misinterpreting things.

Now you have certainly lost a customer.

interestly..... with a conversation with SS they also told me prices are going to increase substantially due to the HJS cats about to skyrocket, they raw material used will be going up substantially in the new year according to converation i had...

incidently, i see that makes no bearing here, DKF can only post the info and see if anyone is interested, if they are, they are....... if not then also fair enough. I didnt look back at the old prices so i wasnt aware how much cheaper if at all, BUT comparing to what i was going to be paying SS, i felt id rather spend it with DKf....

Dan..... Dont be put off, at least stay and contribute to the thread.

What would people ~LIKE~ to see pricewise??

Just wanted to share my set up with you guys. I got one of the original test pipes from DKF and have been extremely happy. I have euro headers OEM xpipe (wanted to keep the raspy down) and el diablo mufflers. I also have the evolve tune. The S pipe is really good quality. The car has been running great with no CEL for several thousand miles.

I'm over it now. I had just poured my first cup of coffee for the morning and sat down to read my favorite forum. Lo and behold, someone called me childish for asking a question! Oh well. It was probably just a misunderstanding. My question may have come across as argumentative, but I really just wanted to understand the pricing.

well with the higher, GB number who knows how far we could get to this??? But i dont think we could get to 1500 square..... BUt... if we could get more involved maybe like 15+, maybe 1600???? it seems were not that FAR off if the higher numers are hit...

The product is solid, the people are solid..... Whether we can hit this price point is another thing!!

Super sprint Want 1400 STERLING!!!!!!! for thier items..... ive had a few PMs from various people now..... i will relay them back to DKF and see if theirs movement.....

If this is a one time production I believe we can get people to buy for later header installation. If one doesnt buy now, then maybe that will be it. No more to be had. 15 people at $1500 could be done looking at it this way.

Wow, you're a tool. Consider another customer no longer interested; and I've been following these systems for a while.

it was definitely not a good way to answer potential customers, ive never had anything but awesome service and conversations with DKf, i talk to one of them regularly on FaceTime to hash-out idea's ect ect

defo think this was although completely not acceptable, very out of character, can we call it a bad choice of words, bad day and forget it.... defo not normal with doug in particular.... he's just passionate about his product and like ALL us of defends that... albeit incorrectly.!!!

Scheisse! If this is a one time never-get-it-again thing, then I need to really be in on it. Very price dependent though. Would it be much more having it shipped to Germany? I'd be in for S-pipe and 100-cell cats as well
