Default Pre-painted Roush parts=ripoff?

I was just wondering. Do you think a pre-painted Roush front w/chin spoiler for $1257.01 is a good deal? It doesn't seem like it to me.

If you have a better idea/place to buy these, I definitely want to know!

that is the standard price....straight off of roush's site basically, and i have not found it much cheaper either....i looked into get a bumper painted and it was a good deal more than the extra you are paying for the painted roush

I forgot to get on ebay last night for this slightly damaged roush front fascia that ended up selling for $331. Best (or worst) part about it is I know a body man and he's been a good friend for about 14 years. Anyway, I definitely think $1200+ for a roush front is way too much. Just get a friggin street scene or boy racer kit...

If it is something you really want then go ahead and do it. Just do your research. You might find something else.

no, that's a great price! most folks *think* that roush parts are overpriced, but that's b/c. they think they're simply receiving painted plastic styled by a big name in the industry. the truth is that all roush parts add between 45-95 hp at the wheels! and i have a dyno sheet to prove that claim!

sorry, j/k. couldn't resist.

Roush parts may cost more when ordered directly from them but I can attest to the fact that you get what you pay for. One of my Christmas gifts were Roush prepainted louvers and yes it was more expensive to order straight through them but there were some faults in the paint job onjust 1 of the louversthat I discovered once I went to intstall them. Instead of facing an uphill battle as seems the case sometimes with aftermarket parts and returns/replacements they bent over backwards to get me what I needed.

They immediately sent out a call tag forthe damaged louver, and instead of waiting until the damaged part was received and inspected before proceeding they had everything in motion silmulatneously to fix the error. They repainted one for me and fed-ex OVERNIGHTED me the louver when it was done. They shipped me my new louver the same day fed ex picked up the damaged one on the call tag. I also requested1 replacement set of the 3M tape included in the bracket packets and they not only tucked an entire bracket pack in with the louver, but apparently weren't sure that it got tucked in so they overnighted me again and sent another entire bracket packet tomake absolutely sure I had everything I needed.

If I decide to put more Roush parts on my car they will absolutely get my business. You pay a premium price, but you also get premium service. I'm definitely willing to pay extra to know I'll be well taken care of.

That's about right. I think that's exactly what I paid for mine about 1 year ago. Quality was great...no doubts.
