B&B is local to us here is AZ and has always had a very solid reputation for exhaust work. Their reputation and being able to work with them in person thru development to ensure our design was executed to our standards made the decision easy when we looked for an exhaust specialist to do the assembly on our system.

I will shoot you a PM on alignment.

B&B has a long standing good reputation with the BMW community. Nothing to be concerned about.

I am not saying that it's a bad thing. Just didn't know. I've purchased B&B for my Mini Cooper S before.

Designed in house and than made by a company that actually manufactures parts. All companies do this. But to put their logo on there?

Are there toyota logos all over a lexus?

Toyota Motor Company labels can be found on many parts of a Lexus-branded vehicle such as the cover for the fuse box, various electronic connectors and servo parts, various stickers such as on the emissions label, underhood VIN label, amongst other things. Isn't that crazy?

On a side note, I wouldn't worry about a B&B label on the exhaust, they are an extremely reputable exhaust company.

According to Roman and ESS, it's not a simply rebranded BB exhaust. It was designed by Roman and ESS but built by BB. It's not like you can buy the same exhaust cheaper from BB.

Correct

They simply do the assembly of our system for us.
