No official announcement for it yet and no final price yet but phastek said probably around 500.

So this happened:



There was a four car pile up and I was lucky enough to be a middle car. Both the front and back of my car are damaged. More so on the back which the picture shows. Both cars behind me had to be towed, the FRS surprised me with how well it took the hit. Looking at filing a diminished value claim after its been fixed which should give me some nice mod money hopefully.

So this happened...

And the tails...

If anyone's been on the fence about the Grip, feel free to listen to mine. Zero regrets.

I also purchased the Ark Helmholtz Test Pipe with my Grip exhaust, but I did not put it on the car. I have no interest in the test pipe. It is for sale and I would much rather deal with a local so I don't have to ship the part!

If you're interested, PM me. It is brand new in box with the original wrapping still in place with Ark branded tape lol.

I really love ARK products, some are a bit overpriced but I decided to do the DT-S instead of the grip (heard great things about both) and love it. About to get my motive HFC front pipe in too!

Hey just a heads up, front license plates will be required after the first. They put the fine back on the book. HB 625 put the fine back.

I hope that cops aren't going to go crazy and start pulling everyone over on the first, it's going to take a few days to receive my relocation bracket :S

I would think that most cops would hand out warnings for the first few weeks or something. Way to many cars with out them.

On the other hand it would be interesting to wait and see how many people complain about this law.

I know a few Dallas traffic cops that are waiting for the first, so they can remind divers with fines. The thing is that the law was still there, it's the fine that disappeared from the books in 2011. So it was still illegal, but no fine.

I also know Pat Lobb was carrying the tow hook plate holders (Grimmspeed) and Brandon Tomes Subaru was talking about getting them.
