    Default JDM mesh grill

    Hey,
    I just found one of these on Craigslist in LA. I picked it up for a great price and some other parts cheap. I just wanted to know why the huge price on these at motorsport. These are pretty flimsy. Are people looking for these?

    MSA overcharges everything.

    MSA is in business to make money-as much as fast as possible. They adjust their price to make the turns and the margin they want. Don't hate them for it, just realize supporting Z owners is not their charity, it is their buisness.

    A Z is beautiful from any angle, I just happen to prefer to view from the drivers' seat!

    On slow moving parts the margin has to be higher. If they sold 200 a week, the margin could go lower and still allow them to make money. It's all about making money on the items you sell. You have to make enough money on each item to make it worth selling. Some things are cheap because they turn over really fast, others that don't sell very well are priced higher.
