It's not nearly that loud. Your exhaust will control the db of the sound more than the dps

If you're thinking of buying the VRSF ones then beware. I ordered mine on 22nd April and haven't received any communication of any kind.

Phone number never gets answered, email not responded to, IAM message ignored. I've even posted a visitor message on his user on this forum but nothing. Just about to PM him now.

Once mapped you won't regret having then installed,

I'm fully catless and the only downside is the smell when stationery at lights

There's a slight increase. You'll notice it, but it won't rock your world like say, installing the JB4 the first time. If you're running a stock exhaust, it'll be a little deeper in tone.

AR design is great, just got mine. Although it took a little while to get they were always in constant communication. Whenever I called they were more than willing to give me status updates and be honest about what was going on. They had the downpipes finished but had to wait a week to get the gaskets.

That is very rare, i ordered mine from vsrf website , got order confirmation via the website with a order number. Recieved order confirmation via email right away, then 2 days later got tracking info, messaged tiago to work some magic on custom via pm on e90post , recieved reply the next day since the time difference, i dont think they work weekends anyway.

Mine arrived uk within 10 days but sat at uk customs for 20 days.

So something is not right as i know vsrf has a very good rep for customer service, e.g a member in the uk got his pipe fitted at birds, birds says bad fitting and wants total 10 hours labour, they manage to work something out but then vsrf gave our member full refund ...

Well I've tired every method of contacting Tiago and not had a reply from any of them. I've also read thred posts of people saying the same as me about his lack of contact. I will continue to try and contact him, hoping he will respond but to say I'm gutted/disappointed is an understatement.

Oh and sorry for the thread hijack OP.

Edit: Have now heard from Tiago. DP's on 10 day back order.
