those w/ grounding systems

do you feel any real difference with the systems? I'm asking because I want to buy one and want to know if it's worth the money....

If I can chime in (I have the 6th gen version) I've noticed a difference right away after having my kit installed. Start ups are smoother, I've noticed a better response in acceleration, my lights flicker less and it looks damn sexy.

Here's the thread for all your ground wire needs

I dont have one, But I sat in Davids (vtecaznracer) car and he has one, and his car seems to idle smoother than mine. As soon as I get my credit card back (F*CK identity theft)I'm going to order the ground kit.

And you can order it from the V6P store. The link is at the top up there ^. The flashing button.

Hmmm? Interesting, I never thought about that. You're the first to mention that. How long have you had it installed Ruiz?

I did a DIY ground kit on my last car and saved some money. I'm not sure if the same applies in this situation, but I'm sure you could buy some 4 guage wire, some terminal rings (I think that's what they're called) and you could hook up a DIY grounding kit for about $20-30. All you really need are the grounding points and that can't be all that hard to figure out. But it does make the electronics a bit more crisp, startup is slightly better, etc.. at least on my last car.

Not speaking for Spektor, but I had my engine cover painted (color-matched) and cleared with standard Dupont auto paint. And it is holding up very well...... I've seen no adverse effects from being right on top of the engine. The shop that painted it wouldn't warranty it due to it being in the engine compartment, but that was fine with me.
