Nothing wrong with your line of thinking, as long as you assume the risks. The performance of OEM two piece is good/great, it's just the servicing of them that sucks.

I still like the 2013/2014 over everything from 05 forward. Don't get me wrong, I like my 08 (hated the 2010/2011). The rear on the 10-11 was just too flat for my taste.

Like a good looking lady...
