While I agree with much of what 1971Camaro said, I don't particularly subscribe to the whole "going in person" thing. I would much rather cast a wide net online, exercise patience and not appear desperate.
I'd be interested in hearing some of the reasoning behind all the China = low quality viewpoints that people seem to be having.
If a product has good reviews, performs as expected (or exceeds expectations) and has a proven track record, why does the country of origin matter? If people are...
I legit did not know about the BBS/Recaro thing, thanks for providing that insight.
The folks that run the FRS/BRZ/GT86/GR86 praise the Enkei RPF1’s for their value, although I’m not sure if they make a size that works for the FL5.
Being made in China does not inherently mean that it is lower quality.
Also, I saw that you're interested in Apex wheels. Surprise, they're made in China.

I've looked at both the M2 and Supra and came to the same conclusion with regards to the Supra. I did not like the lack of visibility from inside the cramped cabin and finding one is damn near impossible at the moment. I will give it credit for the B58 and the addition of a 6-speed manual.
The only line item I would agree to pay would be the doc fee, which is capped by CA law.
"If a dealer has a contractual agreement with DMV to be a private industry partner pursuant to Section 1685, the document processing charge shall not exceed eighty-five dollars ($85)."
Not sure what...
