Hi Raykhoury135, how did the install go with the PLM DP? I'm tempted to buy a set.

Raceland DP's FTW

They make the same power as any other 2.5 DP and they cost 200 and they have been holding up great on my car for 7 months of hard driving.

I installed these a while back and no issues, actually it was a breeze. I did use the factory clamps instead of the V-band clamps that came with it. They were just easier to work with fitment wise.

no issues with install fitment is perfect. looked like a quality product, and almost an exact replica of riss racing version one down pipes. a steal for the money. i offered 300 on ebay and got them for 300 shipped. thanks ray[/center]

Just an FYI, if they are a copy of the RR V1 downpipes, I'd be careful. I HATED my V1s: they clanked, rattled, and generally did not fit all that well on my 335. They tried to blame it on poor installation, but I did it myself and I know they were installed correctly. Finally, AMS installed their RR dps on their 335 and had exactly the same issues I was having, so I'm certain I wasn't alone.

Not for XI..

Pricing is great if everyone can get 2.5" dp's for 300$ without a problem. Debating on these or just going with what I know will be POWER with out a doubt for more(3" AR)

Yes and in fact I think it's better like this. The gradual transition is better for the airflow. The AR and Macht Schnell are made with abrupt transitions just for marketing brag.

BB offers 3" DP's for half the price of what AR sells.
Seems like not a bad deal, and the quality looks just as good.

Your pic says $539 for the BB DP's?
Thats half the price of AR DP's?
I thought AR DP's went for around $650. Correct me if I'm mistaken

Did any of you guys that received the PLM downpipes notice a dent in them? I noticed they received some bad feedback.



Edit: Nevermind, dent used for fitment to keep pipes from vibrating.
