Owners of Macht Schnell or Mastermind X-Pipes

I am looking for feedback on the build quality\functionality of these two X-pipes. I am considering buying one and recently someone told me the quality is terrible. That they don't fit, will rub the heat shields under the car, and/or make the tips at the rear of the car not line up.

While I appreciate the quality of the Akropovic(I own it on my motorcycles), I just cant justify that cost for an x-pipe.

My goals are to eliminate the cat restrictions, increase the sound, and not hack up the stock pipes with test pipes, so I can swap this and the stock pipe between street and track use.

So can you owners comment on whether any of those issues are true or not?

I have the macht schnell and the quality to me is amazing. I had zero problems with filament . About my only complaint is that it is super loud with my non-stock exhaust.

i had the mastermind street x pipe, the one with the resonators, and the fitment and quality was not a problem. paired with my Arqray version 2 exhaust, it sounded so beastly. you wont have any porblems with the x pipe!
