3. The tips in the pic are NOT fully chromed. PE tips are chrome from front to end.


I'm not going to get into the debate if "bait and switch" was used in this deal but I will clear up the fact that the exhaust depicted in the pics is not a PE.



Seller please post the pics you sent to the OP. This way we can settle this.
I agree with you. It doesn't seem to be a PE in the pics that have been posted. Seller already said he didn't have any pics of the exhaust and that he skyped or facetimed a video or whatever.

Thats one thing the seller and buyer both agree on. No pictures were sent. Sounds like a problem waiting to happen.

I guess that when I start making good points you feel the need to discredit me? I'll shutup. My point has been made. I wouldn't want to be the next outcast/victim in this community.
So whats your real account name? seems like u made this account the day OP made this thread, and u come in here just to bust OP's balls, and siding more with the seller, no? Yea yea i see you made couple bs posts, so what? Prove me wrong, lets see you post a pic of your car.

I'm not overly fond of getting involved in transaction disputes, but this is serious. I personally value my online identity and would not want to have it slandered. The OP was looking for a performance exhaust and Incantana responded on Jan 2nd. that he had one for sale at a ridiculously low price. The OP bought it. When others questioned Incantana why he practically gave away a PE, Incantana claimed he didn't know what it was worth.

I went back over Incantana's posts (all 500 of them) and there is an obvious progression of buying/selling parts for modifications. There is nothing however about a performance exhaust. None of the inquiries or discussions that preceded all his modifications. The performance exhaust does not show up on any of several lists of all his modifications. All photos of the rear of the car, however, have been deleted.

Incantana posted inquiries about new pipe tips on Jan. 6, and then on Jan. 13 he posted that he had performed a muffler delete.

This car was previously owned by member MMMCookieS355 - hopefully he can chime in here on whether the previous muffler setup had welded tips.

Incantana - can you explain? Maybe you simply made a mistake and wish to make amends to the OP?

Incantana - seriously, we all make mistakes. If that's the case, get in touch with the OP and settle it. Once you make good on it no one will hold it against you.

This is a hard mistake to make. The sound difference alone between the two is like night and day.

Here is a photo of the car before Incantana purchased it, with chrome pipe tips.



Incantana, maybe you thought it was a performance exhaust because of the chrome pipe tips, and then didn't want to admit your mistake? I understand, it happens. Just come clean and make the OP whole again and he'll chalk it up to misunderstanding and clear your good name.
