Yeah. What's strange is the MSRP on the STI website says around $2000 (or $2100-$2200 after tax). Japanparts is selling for a bit over $1800 which should still be below $2k after shipping.

As an alternative, I'd consider the Greddy SP Elite exhaust which has a very similarly cut tip, doesn't have a resonator/silencer (less pieces to deteriorate), and claims HP: +2.7hp TQ: +4 ft/lb gains for 3 to 4 hundred bucks. Should look less ricey with a 102mm (or 4") tip vs 120mm (or 4.7") on the STI (though they look similarly sized; not sure if they are inner diameter or outer diameter specs). For reference the OEM JDM tips are 86mm (or 3.4").

Should be a good combo with the OEM-looking Takeda CAI which will also be badged as Greddy.

I simply skip out on JDM goodies; they're often too expensive for what they are. Well, except that STI lip I'm going to order soon...

I couldn't help but look at that under diffuser part in the pics/video, and think again, $800? For that piece of plastic? Really?

Slightly OT but looks like the STI front lip will be complemented with side skirts that are coming out soon. That $800 rear diffuser would finish the look. http://www.sti.jp/parts/catalogue/brz_zc6/4.html The 3rd grayed out item translates to:

Side under spoiler
In development

Ooh, that would be nice! C'mon side skirts! Those, the front lip and rear diffuser would be all I'd need for the exterior of the BRZ

The front lip is subtle enough for me to not want skirts or that horrendously overpriced rear diffuser. Though I do think the TRD duckbill's in my future.

The side rails will be the same add-on that is available for the current GV,GR and even the GJ's.
The front, side and rear will all compliment each other.

Yeppers. Kinda bugs me though. Because the BRZ doesn't have any existing side rails for these to bolt to. So for me it will look kind of unfinished. That's why I'm more geared towards the TRD side rails.

The Battery Tid-Down is about 100 (Normal cost for a real strut bar). The "flexible" Strut Tower Bar is just shy of 400 (More than 2 normal strut bars). Ouchee.
