Yes, but no one in the real world would actually pay 3 grand for a set, we re talking silly, over inflated stealer prices here, theyre not actually worth 3 grand - you can probably buy them direct from the manufacturer for the price Partsworld are selling them for.

£3k was the list price. Whether charging list is "stealing" is up to you?
I'm sure they'd have given 10% off at the time when they were worth that price to somebody who'd paid over £21k for the car new and needed a new replacement

They were never worth that, the "list" price is over inflated to make extra money, the manufacturer (ie not Alfa) would charge way less.

Another example of Alfa over inflating prices is the Q2 diff, which started at £300 "list price" and then ended up at £800+ "list price" within the space of a year or so. did the cost of manufacture or materials go up in the time ? Nope, Alfa started selling a lot so they simply upped the price.

Whilst the design is nice, theyre heavy and crack prone, for half the "list price" you could buy some decent, lightweight alloys.
