They have high quality parts, but probably not high enough quality where its worth the extra cost.

Really the only reason that it is that high of a price is for the name, here in the US it is a hard thing to come by (Legit ones anyway). Also they are imported from japan so you would have to add freight and import tax costs. Same thing with imported cars, thats why the 2002 integra type r from japan is a little less than $20,000 (it costs like 11,000 there lol, or something like that). So... that is the reasoning behind the high prices, now for the quality, it is not as good as it could be there are better things like toda and jun and personaly i kinda like spoon although they dont make half of the things they sell. Just do some reasearch on what some other people have to say about the product and then you will be happy with what you get.

Thanks for da props #430! I love the wheel, it was a bit expensive but I like it better than some other aftermarket wheels I've seen. I still have the spoiler, but I prefer it without. The car doesn't seem to attract as much attention wingless ;)

WTF? If the 2002 R costs 11 grand in Japan consider me on the next flight. I think that is a load of bullsh*t.

on the subject, some Mugen parts are good and I would consider buying, others are just overpriced. It depends what you're buying, no company is perfect and makes the best of everything or we would have been buying everything from them in the first place.
