This is one of those cars that seems complete. Every single item on the car has been upgraded and improved. It has so many great and interesting upgrades that it's hard to even pick my favorites. The best part ot me is how clean and stock-ish looking it is to the average enthusiast knowing all that is lurking beneath. So cool! The price seems very fair to me. I can't imagine what it woudl cost to try and replicate the build.
