Great looking piece, but $500 for an uncatted DP is too rich for my blood.

And these are hand made. Not made in china like the mentioned pipes above. And last I checked a standard bell mouth invidia is still 250. And it's mass produced in china.
and still works.

But, I took a ebay downpipe off my car and put this grimmspeed downpipe on, and the tone of my exhaust has changed. Its deeper and less raspy then before. My forester sounded like hammered dog **** before. Now it sounds like fresh dog ****.

FWIW I contacted Matt at GS and asked about a catted version and a LGT version and they both are in the works.

And as I said ^ I will pay. American made and top quality for this guy.

I can't help but lol when I read the posts about using American made parts, say a $500 DP for example, when the $30000 car your putting it on is foreign. Just because its not made here doesn't mean it's not made well.

I am all for supporting our own jobs and economy btw but the premise is amusing.

I just looked at the website and saw the price. I don't really care about the price either since my car is stock and up for sale, no need to put mods on it. And like I said, it looks great. I'm sure the craftsmanship is top notch, but $500 for some bent and welded pipes/flanges. No thanks.

I'm sure that there are. People with more dollars and than cents (sense) type of deal.

I'm sure you could search through the forums or pm someone to get a better price. But when I first made that post I just clicked that little ad at the top of the page that took me to the GS Site and saw the price.

So what's the actual price that they're asking for?

The only place I've seen this DP is in that group buy and they were asking $499 for it. So MSRP or not, that's what you're going to pay for it at this point.

And for $500, you can buy 2 catless Invidia downpipes...

IMO, they shouldn't have asked MSRP in a product kick off group buy. No one will pay that.

12% off that was mentioned, which is still $440 plus shipping I'm sure. Not sure how much more of a discount could be offered ontop of that.

With the work they put into it, I don't think the price is going to be under $400. If this downpipe sold for $200, then I'd buy it.

if it sold for 200, it would be mass produced by a machine in a foreign country and would not have the Grimmspeed Logo welded to the top of it.
