    Default Polyurethane ARB Bushes

    First the good news: I've found some poly ARB bushes for the Vec-C.

    Now the bad news: They cost £36 EACH!.

    They do the rears too, but nearly £150 for four bushes is a tad steep, improved or not lol

    They said that back in October 2009 when I started talking with them

    Since then I've called repeatedly and been coldly promised a result just about every month since. Even after taking my car down to London to get the measurements done. My time and effort

    I gave up, they lied to me and the rest of us plain and simple

    They'd still be very expensive, even at, say, 15% off. Apparently the molds to form a new design of bush cost about $1000, so looks like Abbott are trying to recoup that outlay. They'd actually make more money selling them for half the price but selling 10 times what they do now, by having them on ebay and the like.
