I have little personal experiance with them, other then a friend's audio
shop dealt with them exclusively with no issues that I know of. My only
honest defense is along the lines of the above. While it's true that no OEM
road cars use them, our very own beloved Audi R8's do use them right from
the factory - along with about every other top level car you can find. The
reasoning may be different (advertising sponsorship I'd bet), but even so it
is an application where they seem to shine. I do recall watching them
replace one during Le Mans 2002 in an R8, but thats one out of a much larger
'87 5ktq - Fast.
