Best Cobb price

I'm currently in the market for a new Cobb V3. Where's the best place to buy it at the cheapest price? Doing some searching I see that a place called Top Gear Solutions is offering it for $749. Are they a good company to deal with?I haven't heard of them. Anywhere else that would have a better price? Thanks.

Why Cobb? Bimmer(boost)via free and the cable costs $179 and does the exact same thing.

Or jb4 which I have and it's only $500.

Do some more research I suggest.

Buy from Jeff@ TopGearSolutions or COBB directly (that way you get the 30-day "trial" period).

Thanks for the responses guys.
TZAN I see you previously had a jb4, what's the reason for jumping ship? If you don't mind.
Ill order from them also, I have to wait till we get back from vacation though, we fly out for 2.5 weeks next Saturday and i dont want it sitting on my doorstep till we get back. Hope the price remains the same.

Well ever since I went to the ISO firmware, I started to get very bad idling issues. Long story short I got fed up with it so I decided to try the Cobb out.

Not bashing BMS in any way, love their products and I still have a few of their products installed on my car that work really great but I wanted to try something new.

Thanks. The Cobb seems like a better bet for me also.

Cobb and BB Flash aren't quite the same thing. There are a few extra/better things you get with Cobb, although at a price. You will ALWAYS pay more if you go through Cobb for the same exact thing. I fell for their sales when I bought my V2 two years ago. Yes I could have literally walked into their shop for service if I had a problem but they are problem free devices and how often do you need support. If your dead set on the V3 then shop around but honestly the V3 just like alot of stuff is extra fluff and you could get a used V2 for half the cost that gets the performance done.

Stacked JB4 + COBB is a really good package. A used V2 works just fine & you can most likely get both for the price of a new V3.

I see the Cobb occasionally pop in the the F/S section here. As long as it's properly unmarried from the last car to be sure you can "own" it and install it, that seems to always be the best cost.
