As a data point or for reference sake, I bought one of these from RUF directly in November 2012, when they were based in Michigan. Price then was $339.00 plus $12 shipping and they did supply the installation hardware too.

I remember at the time the Perfect Power ones were within ~$75 of the RUF ones so the savings weren't enough to persuade me to get a knock-off.

Lazy sods, I've got a ruf brace that was fitted in the 90's and it looks identical to the one pictured. I've always thought I'd keep it as its period correct and be hard to replace, didn't realise they still made one exactly the same. I've also got a full set of ruf bilstein shocks and sway bars sat in the garage, anyone know if they are worth anything?

RUF stuff seems to bring strong money. I have seen used things sell for more than they are available new from rstrada!

Just gotta know what to buy and where to buy from. Amazingly we have seen people paid crazy money for a set of knock-off RUF wheels. Nuts.

I have the C4 RUF package on my car (rebranded normal calipers, sway bars and RUF bilsteins). I refurbished the shocks rather than replace them, but more to retain the set up than because they were the pinnacle of handling. The sway bars may have value but I doubt the shocks are worth much if like mine they date back to the '90s. Probably the most sought after RUF part on my car is the split tail pipe
