Sounds like QA1 does not even have much faith in them.

Maybe you are paying $130 a piece for the Konis,but I paid $100/ea through Richard Jonec on the boss forum. Why not contact Richard and see what kind of a deal for the konis you can get?
i think you mentioned him before to me, but the site was down at the time & couldn't get on. i did a little tracking back to the old boss site (can't do a search on the new site unless you register)& sent him an email. i did find the koni's a few $$$ cheaper at shox.com. $504 a set there w/ free shipping. we'll see if i get a reply back from richard (the dates on those posts were dec 06) he was selling them for $460 a set at the time.
You just can't beat Konis. I've had them on everything from Mustangs to Fiats, and have always been happy with them, their performance, durability, and adjustability, even on cars that took constant thrashing.
I hate to sound so close-minded, but I've had such great luck with them, I don't think I'd even try something else, especially if it was nearly the same price!
