Default Patience is a virtue!

Patience is truly a virtue. I had this saved in my Amazon shopping cart for maybe 4-5 months. The price fluctuated from 377 to over 400. Well, I decided to check it last night and saw that it was $112.60. I thought, no way, this has to be an error. I made the purchase and kept thinking that Amazon might email me to say they had made a pricing error but they never did. It shipped this morning. Funny thing is the price jumped up to $427.59 within a few minutes after my purchase. They only had 2 kits in stock and now 1. Score!

Note: The kit is for a GT500. I have front Brembos.

Let's hope you didn't just purchase a poster sized picture of the brake kit.
Also, 2 days shipping? That's fast, unless you live in the same county.

Let us know tomorrow if it's the real deal.

Amazon does that. I had no idea that it dropped that much but yeah, if you want something and can wait, put it in your cart and forget about it a while. It will go down.

They track things like abandoned carts. They lower the price to tempt you to go ahead and pull the trigger when you see it again in a week or two
