I'm not saying what you have is no good and I'm not saying every expensive item better than the cheap ones but it is true more often than not that you get what you pay.

If you like the exhaust note of this piece I'd say you got a great deal @ $299 but to expect it to fit to exacting tolerances down to the micron is asking a lot for a $299 part.


EDIT: the fitment issue you where initially concerned about anyway where so minor that 99% of people on earf wouldn't have noticed one bit.
You do realize this is a $900 catback if you purchase it with the midpipe, right? It's only cheap because they sell an axleback "muffler delete" version. I would fully expect this part to be as high of quality as anything else on the market, and definitely higher than any $600 cat back.

I could give a crap what anyone else notices. If I notice, that's what matters. And I'm a perfectionist. I didn't expect it to fit perfectly down to the micron either.

And my comments were directed at the people that just basically said "you paid too much". Not to the people that are saying what you're saying.

Good thing I'm perfectly happy with the fitment of this $300 product.

I ordered from RallySportDirect and it was shipped in exactly 5 days. Also free shipping where as Nameless was going to charge at least $40 to ship to my state.

I agree with you and this is what I don't get about "can't expect great fitment for $300" crap. Regardless of what I'm paying, this product was made for this exact model of vehicle. There's nothing wrong with expecting it to fit right and aligned properly - which thankfully, it does.

This is exactly what I was trying to say. Some were saying you get what you pay for implying that this is a cheap product. Sure the price is a lot cheaper than a full catback. In reality, you're getting quite a bit less-no mufflers, midpipe, etc.

I think I may have waited 2 weeks when I ordered my catback from Nameless. It was packaged well and was F-ing beautiful when it arrived, so it was worth the wait.

I have to give them credit for the packaging as well. I got it from RSD but I'm sure Nameless packed it and shipped to them (in their box).

It was packaged like it was fine china. I left the bubble wrap on around the tips while installing to avoid scratching them

Can you keep us updated as to the status of your exhaust? I placed an order for their tbe last week and I am hoping it doesn't take a month+ for it to ship. Based on what I am hearing, if I am lucky a month may end up being the minimum.
