We just pre-ordered some for the shop and I'm thinking 449.99 will be the asking price. Based on what the cost is of the WC verses the selling price. I don't see it being much cheaper, maybe higher.

Does anyone know if those caps fit the current big bores ?
As for the car... too soon to tell.

Too early but if I had to guess they would be a replacement for the current BB shocks.

Car is about 90% new.

It's inevitable it would be more expensive. New car. New molds R&D costs etc. I'm excited I should have mine the day it is released.

Plus I save more than that in parts that never break. I've had my current car since the SP was released and just changed to updated parts. Rarely broke them

I hope the rear hubs work on the new car though.
