eBay MagnaFlow Real or Knock Off

I can get the 16537 from an eBay seller with good feedback for 600 shipped. Too good to be true or go for it?

When it looks too good to be true, most of the times, it IS too good to be true.

There aren't any listings on eBay for the Magnaflow for that price - cheapest is $713.86 with free shipping. It is also a 'Make Offer' auction, but I highly doubt they are gonna accept $114 less than the Buy it Now Price...

Curious as to the link for exhaust at quoted price

eBay user "velox" accepted a make offer bid for $600. I'll post up my thoughts when it gets here, I'm guessing next week.

Thanx for the info - I added to my watch list. I actually like the sound of the MF, it has a deeper sound that I'm used to from owning many musclecars, rather than a high pitched wail of some other aftermarket exhausts

Let us know with pics of the exhaust after it arrives

Amazingly and for the first time since I can't remember when, UPS dropped off a large box without major dents in it!!
My goal now is a Thursday morning install.

It's in! Took it to the local shop for installing since the kids are home, company is in town and spare time is at a minimum.
They think it is real as well (they are a magnaflow dealer) so I feel a lot better about that.
Sounds great so far. Nice little growl at start up. Good deep sound on the gas. Don't hear a thing when off the gas. Not anywhere near like a fart can on a civic.

$70 (one hour minimum). I think others have gone as low as $40.
