Nope not yet... Tiago has to email his supplier to figure out why they haven't arrived yet so hopefully they'll show up soon. We all just have to be patient because i'm sure it will be worth it in the end to have quality downpipes without paying over $600.

New sample should be here in about 10 days, just got confirmation. Our supplier tested these on a 1m and they fit so I'm assuming the fitment is going to be spot on but we need to verify since the xi drivetrain is larger

You should just consider something else. The Cp-e DPs are reasonably priced or you can hold out for a set of used ARs which would probably happen sooner then anything from vrsf.

Tiago is away until the 26th. Hopefully they'll be there when he gets back and ready to get shipped. I'll get them put on the weekend I receive them as long as my shop can fit me in.

^^^ I don't believe vrsf will ever release them. If they do, they will need major tweaks from rattling and it will be another 6 months to work it out. I've read too many rattling threads about vrsf dp's as it is, let alone xi where there is far less space to work with.

Not sure exactly what we did to upset you but I apologize for offending you. We don't release products and then "tweak" them to fit. Our customers don't pay retail to be beta testers. We make sure the product is perfect before going into production. If it takes a bit longer, so be it. I'm not comfortable putting my name on something that I wouldn't put on my own car.

Find me one unresolved rattling thread and you get a free set of pipes. Rattling is caused by improper installation/clocking.

The XI pipes are actually going to have more clearance due to the fact that they neck down to 2.5" pipes sooner. BTW we haven't changed one thing on the non-xi DP's since we released them and we've sold over 300 sets. The 3-4 threads that exist that refer to rattling were & are clear cases of improper installations which can be easily resolved by re-setting/clocking the pipes or moving the mid pipe hanger. I haven't had one case where someone had a rattling problem that hadn't been resolved after contacting us directly.

i think people are just getting frustrated with how long this is taking. the issue isnt that you are trying to 100% make sure they are flawless, the issue seems to be this is taking a long time when it doesnt have to. for example, the guy who you were going to give a test set to didnt respond for like 3 weeks or something and you didnt give the test set to someone else. things like that are making this take a much longer time then it should.

I understand you guys are anxious, but VRSF is creating a product based on your requests. It takes time to get a product correct and you guys have to understand that. The only way I could see this being handled better is if he threw out some ridiculously long time period, then delivered the good in less time. But it looks like he's trying to keep you guys in the loop as to how the development is progressing. Don't punish him for being transparent with you.

BTW: I'm looking forward to you XI guys having more DP options. Although I'm not excited about all of the "I got dp's" reviews that will be clogging up the forums.

i would have to agree with michaelalex17 on this one. it seems like this is taking longer than it should for things that should be resolved faster.

I'm sure Tiago's doing everything he can on his end to make this happen.

You guys gotta understand that at the end of the day it's the manufacturer that will determine when they are ready and not Tiago. These things always take long to develop and the suppliers always take a bit longer than they tell you they will.

I'm sure Tiago's just as anxious as you guys are, after all it's a product he's looking to sell so it's in his best interest to release it ASAP as well.
