Whatever dude my statement still stands you cannot prove that a GT-R brake job costs $7500.
NO, it's not, and that is exactly why you don't get it. You haven't figured out the subleties of the information given to you - either you are being willfully stupid about it, or you have the inability to figure it out. You make up statements that represent your own ignorance about what was said, and then attribute them to me.
Let's settle for the RECORD becuase you insist on libeling me:
1) "He says that ALL GT-R owners pay $7500 to change their pads, rotors, and fluids." - I never said that all brake jobs cost $7500, and no matter how many times you repeat it, that it doesn't make it true. I said that Nissan Dealers charge $7500 and I backed it up with documentation from CourtesyParts.com showing that number is right in line with the parts nad labor cost for pads and rotors.
You haven't refuted this, even though you claim it is a lie. You are unable to separate dealer costs from aftermarket costs, and it's sad.
What Maelstrom says: "A brake job from Nissan costs $7500. Parts from Nissan (CourtesyParts) support this cost." Provides documentation.
What BigCloud hears: "ALL BRAKE JOBS FOR ALL GTRS ON ALL CONTINENTS COST PRECISELY $7500" Ignores documentation.
2) "the GT-R brake guru knows more about prices than the performance shops". More fiction. I provided documentation from aftermarket websites showing you that aftermarket is cheaper, but it's not cheap. I gave you this information and yet you ignore it.
What Maelstrom said: Nothing, he never claimed to be any kind of a "guru" about performance shops.
What BigCloud hears: This guy is a big *** who knows everything about brakes and claims he's a guru on performance shops.
3) "your stupid comments about 20k transmissions is mute as well" - It's "MOOT" you moron. Mute is what you should be. Moot is a redundant or invalid point. It's "are moot" becuase the comments are plural, not "is moot".
What Maelstrom said: "Transmissions from Courtesyparts.com cost $17,000."
What BigCloud hears: "No transmission can be rebuilt, built out, or purchased for less than $17,000"
Just look at what Sharif from Forged Performance wrote a few posts above. Also look at the GT-R owner that just changed his pads for $350. You're an idiot, and like I said before you can't prove GT-R brake jobs cost $7500.
I don't have to prove it - that's NOT THE ARGUMENT. You can't figure that out, not my problem. You're the one who can't figure out what people are talking about. Don't blame your lack of cognition on the forum populace.
What Sharif wrote is correct and HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. I already told you aftermarket pads are cheaper, you idiot. Stop confabulating the truth, jerk.
I have not failed you failed at not proving your argument.
Yeah, you have. You still haven't provided anything that says CourtesyParts is lying to customers about the cost of a driver's seat ($9000), a brake job including rotors and pads, or a new transmission ($17000+).
Either man up and admit you are wrong about what Nissan charges, or shut up and sit down child.
I am a gt-r brake job know it all.
I will be paying total of $3000 for new rotors (prob dba), endless pads, new fluid
BigCloud: legear080 thanks for your response as well. As I can see your about $4500 dollars off according to Malestrom. Remember he's the know it all.
BigCloud, you missed his point entirely. $3000 for brakes is NOT CHEAP. Are you getting this? He didn't refute that GTR prices are expensive - he BACKED IT UP. That's only half of what Nissan charges for OEM!
Let's play taglines!
the GT-R guru says that CourtesyParts.com overcharges and lies to their customers about the cost of parts. He says brakes and transmissions for the GTR are no more expensive than any other car. Bow to the master BigCloud, for he is king of GTR.
