Sometimes change is cool just for the sake of changing stuff. I think some of the bits and pieces here look really cool, although since I'm not doing time attacks or track days, most of this stuff is wasted on me.

Sux that there's no engine work, but depending on the price, it could be a deal for those of us who want only OE/OE tuned parts.
