how obviously fake can you get :D nevermind that these are like $650 less than a real one

What I'd like to know is why would anyone pay for a Mugen valve cover no matter what the price? Is it a "high-performance" cover, better than the stock one? Gimme a break. Those are for schmoes who just want their friends to see the name "Mugen" when they open the hood. If that's worth $800 to someone, I pity the fool! I pity 'em!

i think i'd be more likely to just paint the one on my car before spending the money on a new cover
hmmm i'll have to look into some wrinkle paint and see if it comes in pink :D

i just noticed those on ebay today too, i thought it was a good deal until i saw the word mugen "style" . i hate fake ass copies. but then again who would pay 900 for a real one.

hahah..i came across these in another thread..i dunno if it was here on sho or on ht. but yeah the concensous is that they are whack ass rice copies... i remember in that other thread that someone contacted king motorsports about this knock-off and supposetly king contacted this manufacturer and they are supposed to take it off the shelves...or off of selling. guess they aren't listening to king motorsports.
:eek:
