Their price is insane. Keep an eye out on CL and the forums to buy second hand. I got mine for $250. No way would I pay anywhere close to $700.

I paid around 700 from AM for my axel back stinger s-type but I don't regret a single cent, it's was all worth it. The sound and quality of them are amazing.

You want to know why they raised the prices? I'll tell you, it's because we love their ***** and they know it. They know we will get Borla because of the sound they make. It's so unique and addicting. They know this and they are greedy bastards.

The price raised most likely due to discretionary income expectancy for the next 90-120 days will increase for many mow to middle class Americas. More simply stated, tax returns are coming and people are likely to blow that money on items they have held out to purchase.

Websites owners are able to analyze the traffic data to their websites and more specifically trend that data annually. I could go on for days but thats the short version. They are charging more because people are more likely to spend it...

This. Same reason used car values go up in the spring. People who aren't good with money suddenly have more than they normally would and make purchases they are otherwise unable to save for.

Hell, one of my employees got back $9k last year with tax credits for his kid and other things. He only made $25k all year. I got back $1k and paid in wayyyyyy more than that.

I was (still am, luckily) enjoying my $70/month coverage with almost no deductible, all health covered... Obama steps in and the CHEAPEST ****ty BRONZE plan I can get is almost $400/month with a stupid deductible and horrible coverage. Thank god they extended the current policies until 2017.

Lucky I trying not to go to the doctor as much but I've had a headache since dec 14. So I'm getting MRIs to make sure I don't have a brain tumor and it's close to a grand for an MRI where I'm at.

Yup, and now they appear to be an "investment" lol. At least if I had to justify it to someone I would now be able to!

Did anybody ever hear of Obamacare??????

The big company's have to pay up so they just pass it on to their customers. Borla is not the only large company that is forced to increase prices.
Ya are just going to have to get used to stuff costing more.
