I really love the way the ARK looks sitting under the car.

No. One hundred. Just have to wait for good deals. Kind of red paperclip type idea.

I believe it, just a bit of patience and knowing where to look simplifies this process. People would be surprised how open to trades one would be.

When I had the Q300 and coilovers I was pretty low and the flex joint scraped all the time. I could not go over speed bumps at all. I had to go out of my way though my neighborhood to get home. Only 1 way worked. The muffler looks low but that was never an issue because it is between the tires. The flex joint is also very low and it's easy to "high center" on it.

Strange, I've never had a problem with speed bumps at my home with my Q300, I do think there are 2 versions though.

How low are you? When I was tucking tires I literally could not go over any speed bump. It was horrible. But at stock height you wouldn't have any problems.

I'm only at the top of my tires so I'm not slammed, didn't want to be for winter time but I do go over speed bumps every day at my house and a few times during the week for groceries.

It also just is a matter of finding the right person to trade. I was very interested in the GReddy Ti-C, so trading away the ARK worked out for both of us at the time. We traded straight up and all was good.

I can back this up. Even with the low midpipe on the ARK, at stock ride-height I never had issues at all.

You must have lower speed bumps around your house!

Yeah that helped a bunch! It definitely made it a lot easier to get the GReddy. The last two trades were straight up. Prior to that is how I got to the sub-$100 point.

I scrape midpipe all the time lol. The flange is missing about 1/4th of an inch due to scraping.

I think it's about time you stepped it up to an N1 race. No, I'm not joking.

that single exit is sweet. is it loud for as a DD?

Yeah, I'm not really interested in a noise maker. If I wanted to go single exit again, I would go back to the GReddy. Very nice exhaust.

I thought it was bearable, but it's definitely loud. It will be louder than most all of the quad tip options that have a muffler.

^ Agreed. I'm not sure if RSD has the Ti-C anymore though. It's a nice exhaust. I need to figure out a way to make mone shiny again...

Regarding xluben's exhaust timeline:
I like the tips on the Q300 the best but not with the sacrifice of ground clearance because of that muffler. Greedy SP Elite wins for descent tips and the best ground clearance. You still haven't tried the TurboXS or ERZperformance. Just saying.
