They lost 100% credibility with me after seeing the fitment last night. Complete garbage.

yes, This one was worse though. The old get what you pay for slogan holds very true when it comes to downpipes.

My parts have all fit great. I also paid more than the bottom barrel brands too though.

Same here. I do a lot of research on parts before I buy them. My car is fairly built, haven't had a single fitment issue on anything.

He's one of the guys that started the group. Its amazing how many people run it. Any most post about fitment issues, and more people buy it.

Hey guys, I just installed a turbo back exhaust from awe and I'm getting a metal rattle by my feet. Does anyone have any suggestions or would mind providing some help? The exhaust is completely installed.

Is your downpipe coming in contact with the Heat shield?

Could also be loose without any contact. Had to tighten some of mine after the fact.

Just spent 3 hours doing this and torquing all bolts to the manufacturers recommendations. Going to take it on a test drive now

Does anyone here have experience with installing Lamin-X or some sort of protection on the headlights?

Nope but I do have Laminx in the door cups behind the handles. The material is surprisingly forgiving to work with and was able to be repositioned a few times with no issues.
