Is that normal for them to discount it like that? Maybe they're trying to sell out the first batch to help build some hype for the holidays restock.

There is Retail Price, Wholesale Price and Market / Street Price. Retail price is full markup. Wholesalers receive a discount around d 40-50%, depending on the volume they sell. Then they mark it up to market / street price which is 20-30% off of the full retail price.

cool which wishbones are they and where have you got the links connected to on the chassis? I have alloy on the front of mine so have the std parts left over only missing the wishbones really.
