I see that West Coast Customs is now offering "special kits" of complete sound systems for various vehicles at Best Buy now. I was just wondering if anyone has checked these out? I was thinking that it's just another way to add extra expense to a total system or wondering if it's quality one stop shopping?? I realize the more knowledgeable people could prolly piece together the same thing for cheaper but still just curious about this new offering.

Well since Best Buy sells mostly overpriced sub-quality audio equipment, I'm guessing its just a way to add more to the price for a "name".

Just my $.02

haha....even they admit doing that show ruined it for them, that's why they stopped doing it. they do some quality stuff on their new show.

I just liked the idea that I could go in, give them my make, model, and year, and they will hand me a pallet of everything I need....not being an audio guru myself. But I think my fears are confirmed.

I think the first year they did cool shit, but then it went downhill real quick. They've admitted in several different mediums that they saw how stupid it was and that they were becoming synonomous with that bullshit so they wanted off the show. That's actually why he made his last 2 series, to prove that that nonsense was all MTV and had nothing to do with them.

Yes, it seemed that the show went from actually doing cool, realistic custom work to showing how crazy they could make a car. It was manipulated into something that really had nothing to do with delivering a cool custom car that the customer wanted, but rather a showcase for over the top modifications.

showcasing "why would you do that" I think is more like it :lol: I can't believe the rap dude still wants to be a part of it. Galpin Auto sure has no problem with looking like tools on national tv however.
