Don't knock people for wanting deals, Youngsters are finding better deals for their money. Everyone can't go cough up Greedy/Trust money. And the article says their $60 million in debt and $43 million in loan payments. I don't think thats from people buying third party products. Sounds like some one over there needs a kick in the ding-ding. I think Apexi filed for bankruptcy about a while back and their still around. Most likely they will pulll in some investors and reconstruct their finances.

Sucks for them.. but people buy knockoffs cuz they're an asston cheaper... 800ish for a Greddy intercooler.. or 100-200 for some sweet chinese power that low and behold actually does the job.... so the extra 600 bucks is for a name... that one could spray paint on..... People have been doing knock offs for years... on any kind of name brand product out there.... the fact is if company "A" is making a popular product for $X.XX why wouldn't someone want to buy the same Generic knockoff for half the cost from Company "B". Now If Company "A" could sell it at a more competitive price then I belive you'd see less knockoffs...

Car PC is awesome and totally custom built so Its not really generic just car and computer integration at its finest! And about my statement haha I wasnt clear on that. Over the years of me being interested in car modding, up until I got my own car, I've had acouple of friends get gipped over getting knockoffs with the name on it and everything, paying top dollar, only to end up getting CEL's and weak welding that dont hold for long. As opposed to the genuine quality products. I know its partially their fault for not checking closely but yeah, Its just sad to me that good ol' Trust/Greddy is going through hard times. Yes its expensive but we get what we pay for. Just the two cents.

Hehehe, hey, I'm not a knockoff :), it's a totally different product with better options :)

I buy knockoff depending on what it is. If its a strut bar, ebay it is. I got one from Ebay for 30 dollars shipped.

Now, if it's some type of electronic or exhaust system type of stuff, I'm getting the brand name.

I've seen people get Ebay downpipes only to find out that when installed it was hitting the firewall. I had to completely replaced the entire exhaust system on the Forester because Bo had bought Ebay knock off that was loud and didn't fit with any other system out there. So, buying knock off totally depends on what it is.

I know that, I meant as in going with you I get a AWSOME product that does more for a way better price.

Things that need a precision fit, don't get knock offs. The price of the item pays for R&D to make sure it's gonna fit right. And if you call support, they'll help you.
