this exhaust system inherently requires way above normal level of modification done necessary for its installation. none of which was ever disclosed to me. along with the fact that your Ad state that this exhaust has both cat deleted which turned out not to be the case, I believe $1000 refund is quite fair. since it cost you $300 to ship this, it shall cost me the same to send it back to you.
I will call him tomorrow and hear what he has to say.

look at what all you guys did over a weld on system.

it's built to perfection and you guys made it look like it's built to a civic and was sold to an M3 owner.

be real, as tightie said... maybe you guys will listen to him... bc that seems to happen a lot..........

just go to a normal shop and get that shit fuckin welded its not a big deal...

how much hp does it add?? you have a dyno??

i don't blame the guy for being hesitant i know i wouldn't put that thing on my car

Ill try to get my car on a lift to take pics, but its real simple and u might say mine looks poor or what not, but I can care less.. It sounds great if not the best (quoted by the people) and adds HP not like half of the $5000+ systems out there.

K that's all

Lets say I was to even give you a refund. Why should I give you the full $1000 when it cost me $300 to get it to you? Sure you are shipping it back but im still out $300 if I refund you $1000. Does not make any sense at all. When I spoke to you on the phone you told me the exhaust shop was NOT able to install it. I kindly asked to speak to him. When I talked to him he said it would fit but he could not install it that day and that you had to come back. I would NEVER sell a system and waste my own time shipping it if I knew it would not fit. My advice to you is to find a shop and have them actually ATTEMPT to install it.

Would you like to see the FedEx invoice? I have no reason to lie about that. I hate when people talk when they don't know shit.

that "thing" sounds better than 80% of the exhaust systems on this forum for less than half the price of other systems. So I can live with that.

er... i dont get it... all thats required to install this is to weld the pipes together and mount on the car. who's going to see the welds ? no one ... any normal exhaust shop can do the work. hell, i can do the work (i have some experience in welding)... its just a matter or lining things up before welding thats all.

actually added 7 hp. and yes, i do have the dyno.

ur paying 1k for a exhaust, you get what you pay for.

my old elite system went to a e90 m3, then to a e92 m3. they were both happy with the system, only reason the first guy sold it is because he sold the car.

That exhaust isn't even properly mandrel bent, if AT ALL. But, I guess you get what you pay for!

I think you need to find a good exhaust shop. It's not very hard to bend some pipe and weld it to a set of mufflers. Any basic exhaust shop should have the tools necessary to make this project possible. Most exhaust shops have a pipe bender.

Neither is stock.... Although mandrel bends are best, they are not necessary.
