Let me preface this with Xray does make great products with a respectable level of innovation and have set a bench mark for quality of fit and finish and strength. ButI do believe they fall a bit short of "luxCary" when you considerall the "must have" tuning parts and upgrades needed. From what it seems they have addressed some of this with the new car, so we shall see.
As for cheaper competitors, 2 come straight to mind. AE and VBC. Both have steppee up there game with better durabilty and comperable build quality to Xray. AE offers a few tuning options out of the box withbIMO the best sway bar system on the market. The AE kit comes in at around $150 less than the Xray as well
The VBC Dynamics comes with both carbon and aluminum chassis, DCJ's', multiple toe blocks, ti-nitride hinge pins and shock shafts, and every shock spring, bladder, piston, an
d swaybar VBC makes. All that for $50 less than a T4 14.
Edit. Forgot to throw ARC in there. Their Black Edition has extras in it and still under price of stock Xray.
