    OBX sucks donkey balls.

    Options Auto Salon is where I order all of my stuff, you can find it cheaper, but thier service is great.

    Only thing I had OBX was a strut bar, and it was very nice. None of those tiny steel tube bars. This was very strong and had great mounting brackets.

    My OBX coilover sleeves worked fine, I never had any problems with them.

    I never said all their parts a good, just that my specific set of coilover sleeves worked fine. I know there are better products out there, but these did what they were supposed to do. Would I pay what I did for them 2 years ago? No way.

    Like my R1 coilovers. They ride awesome. The shop that I get my stuff from has drove my car a bit and says they handle a lot better than any Skunk2 coilovers they've installed.

    ok... that's about the shittiest comparasin i have ever heard of. how in the world is somebody going to say that product A works better than product B when they are on two completely different vehicles?! put some skunk 2's on your car and find out for yourself that they are better.

    I know someone who dynoed the same with a matrix jdm wannabe 4-1 as he did with a real jdm type r 4-1 header. Everyone thinks the most expensive is the best, not always.

    I have an OBX short shift adapter, and it works great. Hella cheaper than a DC or something like that. It's one piece of machined aluminum. If a company can fuck that up, they don't deserve to be selling parts.
