M3 Titanium Exhausts

Hey guys, I have been talking to a supplier of titanium exhausts and wanted to gauge the interest here on the forums. I would like to become a distributor for them in Oz and I will pay the forum supplier fee If things move ahead. ie enough interest on here.

If I can get 5 interested people I can make a pretty decent deal.
Can be done in two parts
Cat Back (weight 8.5kgs) (pic 1) - Approx price: $2500 delivered
X-pipe + Cat Back (weight 8.5kgs + 5.4kgs) (pic 1 + 2) - Approx price: $4000 delivered


2.5" piping.





I have ordered an exhaust for my Evo and it should be here in a week or two. Quality should be outstanding as these guys manufacture for a lot of high end companies.

There are exhausts available for nearly all current models and makes all in Ti goodness.

Again this is just a feeler if you guys want them ill become a sponsor and do it right
I am well known across multiple forums under the same user name and I will give out all my info if this does happen.

Sounds like a great business venture mate

It does seem pretty fun so far!

I just received an email they offer the catback exhaust in stainless as well. Same design just stainless.
Looking at around $1500 delivered.

The manufacturer is based in China - the brand is TITAN. Not to worry though as they are probably the worlds largest titanium exhaust manufactures and half of the exhausts on offer are already made by them.

PS these prices are delivered to your door. No extra GST or import tax its already included in the quote.

^ Yeah they are. I had already ordered my exhaust direct before I found those guys, but when I did inquire about an exhaust from them the mark up was pretty high.

If you look here, they want $4770 for just the full exhaust which im trying to organise for you guys at $4000.
So yeah im just trying to be helpful and make a little bit on the side

I'm surprised the manufacturer would allow a second distributor here, although, it's from China so it's probably not that surprising haha

Haha yeh having more than 1 person in oz selling the same product is truly evil.
But seriously zero didn't design the exhaust they are simply reselling them as their own.

The only thing your paying me to do is pay for the min quanitity of 5 units and distribute them out.
Otherwise yeah anyone can order 5units but most don't want 5 they want 1.

I take the risk you get a saving. Win win?

Parallel importing is part and parcel of business Rossi... Keeps importers honest.

At the end of the day though, I wouldn't be paying $4k for something no-name out of China to go on a $180,000 car. Just me.

Haha By your thinking there should only be one distributor in oz for greddy and one for hks ect ect.
But obviously that's not how things work. Wholesalers or manufactures sell to as many distributors as they can. They don't deal with individual orders or the public, hence the need for distributors.

Like anything competition is good in the economy.

It's total fine if no one is interested like I said it was ti gauge interest and if the interest was there I would have become a site sponsor.
