Actually it matters. Metals in China generally don't have the same quality (or quality control) domestic metals do. When we pulled VRSF pipes off a car, they had surface rust on them within 3 months of putting them on. Another car ran the AR's for a year and we pulled them, no rust at all. Does this tell you something?

I'm going off my own personal experience here, not what a particular manufacture advertizes/claims.

I think you're confusing surface rust with discoloration. AR's will also discolor as will any pipe. Ours may turn a different color due to the polish used but it will not rust, especially in FL.

Nahh man.

The sound is too quiet. 3.5 single pipe is nice but damn huge 1990 Honda Civic DX muffler is so ugly.
Was a fan of VRSF products but this exhaust is just a no go...

We do have plans on offering a resonated/mufflerless setup in the future for those looking for a bit louder although when the muffler is fully broken in with a set of catless down pipes, I wouldn't exactly say that it's too quiet.

Now...that would be really nice. I'll be switching to it once you have it released.

AMS stopped making this exhaust configuration for a reason...

AMS stopped making any/every exhaust design for the 335i. It wasn't the design, it was more of the fact that they backed out of the N54 platform and the lack of sales for a $1600 exhaust.

Our muffler is actually smaller than most dual exhaust mufflers when combined and it is very free flowing (non-baffled unlike most dual muffler systems). I've heard the HPF and a couple of other "muffler delete" cars and they were way too loud/raspy/droney for my taste, but we do plan on targeting that market

There's already like 5 new exhausts ready to go for the loud lovers haha, it's nice to see something more tame, it may just be what I needed for what I had in mind. I never watched the video yet though I'm just going off what the last couple comments said so maybe it's not even as tame as people are making it out to be.


Tiago are all these parts from Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturers?

Also is there any chance you had interest in developing new products if I were to provide some ideas and if necessary contacts to manufacturers who can transform the ideas to real life?

AMS priced their exhaust terribly and no one bought it. I thought it was one of the best sounding exhausts in the market but there was no way I was paying what they wanted.

This exhaust looks like a great alternative.

I might be interested in this. Too quiet is the only reason I haven't jumped on this yet... To me the HPF exhaust sounds perfect, loud but with very little rasp. Some rasp is fine but I like as little as possible while still having a loud and deep noise. I'm either going to wait to hear some catless clips or wait for this second setup your planning. If you need someone to test fit the second setup late me know hahah

The quiet factor is what makes this exhaust more appealing to me. Bump in performance without unbearable noise lol. Everyone has different noise tolerance levels though, different strokes for different folks.

I've stated plenty of times that most of our products are made overseas and I've always been open to it. These are made in China along with 90% of the other major brands that sell on this forum. ETS & AR are the only ones that make their products domestically.

We offer a lifetime warranty and I'll guarantee the product will outlast the ownership of your vehicle. With a lifetime warranty on fitment and durability there's nothing to worry about. If for someone reason someone decides to discriminate a product based on it's origin then there's nothing I can do but you should realize that the computer you're currently using along with almost all of the items you use on a day to day basis was probably made in the same country these pipes are coming from.



AR makes great products and I'd definitely recommend them if our pipes were unavailable for purchase. With that said, we've sold over 400 sets of these pipes and have dozens of glowing reviews.

Its sad how people automatically associate china with low quality, when in reality almost everything is made there nice work keep it up you guys are doing great

after the catless downpipes and this exhaust, it would be a fully catless exhaust system.

Aww man your sales are about to go into over drive. Now I can finally afford an exhaust without paying $1500+ or buying a used one...Eff Yea...now you should develop coil overs and just start a take over for the aftermarket area... Im definitly getting one of these...
