What are Parts/Mods you wish were more affordable?

Hi guys. I'm just compiling a list together to see what are some parts/mods you wish were more affordable?
I vote for after market exhausts. How hard is to fabricate steel? These things are way over priced.

As for a supercar, itís fairly inexpensive to maintain and modify. funny everything is expensive on these cars, except the car itself. Sad face

What kind of electronics?
Engine might be hard to get cheaper.

So true. Everything but the car itself is expensive these days.

The exhaust definitely. Price went up as the car depreciates rapidly. Really wish I can justify a new section 3 Dinan exhaust but for the price of a rod bearings service with ARP studs, I passed. Instead I had one fabricated with a pair of magnaflows with equal diameter sections.. couldnt have been happier.. Another thing would be the freakin dual mass flywheel for 6 speed manual - price is rising as well. A couple of more things - I wish intercooled supercharger kits and BBK's were a little more affordable.. for an old car you would think.. oh well..

The price of the car has nothing to do with manufacturing brand new parts for it.
