Those are the exact ones I was looking at last year!  I really like them. But all ones I found were from Australia and shipping was around $100.

So is says it would be 318.90 AUD shipped. So there is a exchange rate factor here right?!? 318.90 AUD comes out to 225.83 USD. In the end I would only expect to pay 225.83 right? Still wouldn't mind cheaper ones but I'm not really seeing anything I like. I really do like these though...

They are the ones I have and they fit perfectly plus they clear the tall Scorpion rockers, fasteners supplied
Sometimes they have a 20% off sale and that's when I bought mine for about $140AUD
Maybe if I see them on special again I'll buy a couple of sets and if anyone wants some at whatever they cost plus postage, hmm maybe can do a bulk buy?

Would be interesting to see. I really like these. The only other ones that I'm having interest in a pretty expensive and that is the blue thunder ones.

If you're getting up into the $2-300 range, you might as well pay $1-150 more and get the bad boys...they really are made well and the screw in breathers/pcv/filler caps w/ the o-rings are definitely trick...no leaky rubber grommets. Seriously, give my car a detail and you'll make that difference in the detail!!!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb

I am planing on going to Australia for Christmas. I think I should bring back one extra bag full of stuff. My wife may not be too happy. I just need to bring one pair of underwear and socks. Haha whistling Chin
