Can't decide what to do about downpipes!!!

I want downpipes for n54. My options are wait and buy new AR dps at the end of march for $735, new bms dps for $415, new vrsf for $360, USED AR downpipes for $450 or USED vrsf for $200 (they're a local seller)

PLEASE HELP ME PICK!

Pipes are pipes when it comes to these, so long as they fit.

In that case, definitely pick them up and save the $500+ to put towards something else.

you'd be crazy not to pick up those local vrsf ones. i have vrsf on my car(bought them new though) and when i installed them my buddy who has done 5 or six other dp installations said they fit just as nice as all the others(more expensive) he had installed. i'm very pleased with them.

Haha yeah everyone keeps saying the same thing plus I know they fit since they're coming off an e90 too. Theyre coming off on Monday and picking them up Tuesday. He also wants to sell his stock n55 exhaust that he has on his n54 and says it sounds sick like the performance exhaust since it has no cats or resonators.

VRSF... But for a difference of only $160 I'd just buy new ones rather than go used.

...shouldn't have to pay more than $250/300 for catless dps.

No significant performance difference. if you get 'em used, you know they fit.
