Ipd Stage 3

Recommended Posts

Less than 5 years ago a sheet of 5/16" steel cost me $125.00 it now costs me $295.00 for the exact same piece of material. Inflation is alive and well regardless of what you may think.

Let's not blame Canada for that, blame China & India for high steel prices :rolleyes:

CJ, I was asking Scott back in 01 to come out with this kit before I went hog crazy on my car and they didn't want to do it, so I did my own thingy as alot of board members did. I'm glad that IPD finally pulled their head out of the fox hole and decided to do something for the Volvo community but I think is a bit late on the game, a lot of us are way over there head in terms of performance options and configurations ;)

God speed to IPD..

Hey everybody:

Let's stop beating this up. Yes the kit can be had for cheaper if we were to source the parts --individually-- ourselves. But for those without the time, and have some cash, GREAT. If you think it costs too much--don't buy it. Additionally, IPD may be a little more expensive than others, but their service is second to none. There is a lot of value to be had in good service, and affluent Americans are willing to pay for it. I know I am.

ever heard about wholesale disscount?

Guy's like you are why the Local Speed shop's have gone breast up.

" Hey I have a freind that has an account and I can get you a killer deal"

Easy for you, no overhead just a "Great Deal"

BTW

Tell us all where to get the $400.00 or so DP that's Tig welded fits like a glove and has a no I'm dumb warranty

and Im sure Scott, Frank, Don and George will all place sizeable orders!

Exactly

I am a firm believer in getting what you pay for: if something costs less, there's probably a reason.

yeah, usually the reason is capitalism, but I'm with you on this one, you usually get what you pay for

I am all for IPD, that is the first site I really found good parts on. Granted I have not bought A lot of my parts from them, but I have some. I tend to go the cheaper route, but my car just got paid off this year.....

The bottom line is IPD is a great company, and the more they put out the more others will try to match or surpass. Then better parts will be found a lot easier.

Now you're talkin' Coke dealer territory.

oh no, another one from California.. WHo a hell are u to tell me shut up? Jesse did his downpipes and thelostartof made his, and people bought them and it didn't cost 900 bucks. So I don't give a shiit what u wrote in your post, we are giving our ideas in this and then mr.smartass like you, trying to tell us that we are all stupid and everybody must get IPD, u know what.. fk that

Ok

1. What does me being from California have to do with anything?

2. Jesse's Downpipes were of incosistent quality and had some fitment issues. People buying an item for 180$ or 300$ and people being happy with that item and having it fit properly and be professionally welded are two different issues. i could make you a downpipe out of cardboard and tinfoil for 450$ and the fact that someone bought it means nothing. Buying a product, and having a product be up to the standard you want it to be are two different stories. I bet if you ask Mike personally if CJ's downpipes are better made, cleaner and fit better for your average car (ie not custom made on the car but rather sent out to people with no test fit on that specific car) he would agree that they are. However his may very well work as well.

3. You are not giving your idea, you are lamenting ipd about their price, thats not an idea. They've been in business prolly longer than you've been alive (or me for that matter) so I take it they know what they're doing as far as pricing goes.

4. I called no one stupid except you. And that was warranted.

5. I told no one here to buy ipd, I actually explicitly stated that most of us here do not buy all of our parts from ipd and ipd does not market directly to us, but rather to the masses who dont know about this site.

6. I strongly dislike (I don't really want to use hate, because well you might only be a big douche in real life and not a huge one)

7. I like lists.

8. I want to keep putting things here to make this response look even more formulated structured and articulated.

9. The only reason I am still posting in here, or even did in the first place is so I can argue with douche's like karlson and so I can distract myself from the work I need to get done.
