Akrapovic Exhaust ?

How long did it take everyone who bought the Akrapovic exhaust system to get it? Who did you order it through? Let me know.

I, like a few others, took a leap of faith(as in direct wiring) and ordered from Ralf. I got the system in a week, and for the most part it;s the stupid customs/shipping companies fault. I had 3 days of back and forth with the shipping company before they delivered it. But it arrived to Canada(at the airport) in 3 days. I've also heard from Ralf that he had some trouble with FedEx before, so maybe it's just some delay? Hope you get it soon!

It sucks because I am going out of town Thursday, and it will probably show up Thursday, ad ws hoping to have it on the car before then! Oh well.

I ordered through Evolve Automotive. Once Evolve got a hold of it it literally took 2 days to leave the United Kingdom to get to my front porch. Although Evolve didn't get their shipment for about 2 weeks from Akrapovic which they told me about.

Sorry the wait is killing you, I was on the same shipment with Sard and its probably taking time to get to the international airport for departure from Akra. Once its departed its like a 2 day process but make sure you give them your cell number as ups or fedex will call for your SS# for customs purpose.

I don't believe it is their fault, I believe it is on Akrapovic's end. Akrapovic says they have shipped it at this point, but their Airway Bill number is no good, and FedEx does not have it in their system. They said it shipped out Friday, so surely it would be in the system by now. I know several vendors quoted me 2-3 DAYS after buying it, so I am little worried now. Anyways, let me know.

Thanks. It really sucks that I HAVE to deal with them, and I cannot just get a product that I pay for in a timely manner, without being lied to and manipulated. Why does it seem that the more I pay for a product, the worse the company is about not telling me the truth! It does not make sense. Anyways, I will handle this, and let you guys all know what happens from there.

Now I see why you sold the AA x-pipe. :-)

That looks like a wonderful setup.....I think it is my favorite so far. I hope you get it soon...

Thanks Tim.

I am working with the dealer now on this, so we will see what comes of it. I hope it all works out in the end for everyone involved.

Bulletproof Automotive has been in contact with me, and is in fact taking care of it. They apologized for the misunderstandings, and are sincerely sorry. I was their first customer to buy the Akra system, so I was kind of a guinea pig. No problem with that, I just wish I would have know. I can't wait to get the system now!

I don't think anyone has stock except for Akrapovic. This is an expensive system to just stock.

Shipping to the US only takes 2-3 days to the US. 50% of the systems we sell end over there

Can you price match? You were not the lowest priced. You quoted me.
