I like it, but I'd be concerned about it being from China. Especially living in Cleveland, with all the salt and brine put down on the roads.

I want to like this, but I'm afraid it doesn't look much better than stock (if at all). It sort of looks like what it is: a cheap little bolt-on tip.

In the last two pictures (the last one especially) it sort of looks like it's floating because it's so much wider than the exhaust pipe and it just looks really obvious that it's just for show.

Sorry, don't mean to be a hater. But I think doing this right will require more than a $20 Chinese part. Part of the problem might be the lack of an exhaust cutout in the bumper, which is why I think the Euro Focus exhaust looks pretty good, even though I think it's probably just a tip as well. Probably the best option for US cars is to go with an actual new exhaust with integrated yips.

All of this is IMO, of course.

You have to consider the angle of the photos. Most of the them I took right at ground level where you see the mechanics of it all.

You don't see any of that at standing level.

Ships out of China and seems fairly well made. Mounts real easy. And looks 100% better than that bare piece of pipe! See for yourself...

It looks OEM -- nice mod. You could cut the studs but nor if you ever want to get it off again, I assume.

Oh hey! I just got mine up here to the land of cleve.
The roads are brutal. My brother shredded a pair of tires in 20k miles because the potholes screw up your alignment.

Got mine today and it's looking beautiful!

Build quality seems ok, now only time will tell if it will survive our harsh eastern canada winters....

Approx. 3 weeks shipping from China to Canada. Paid 28$ free shipping... eBay seller: http://www.ebay.com/itm/304-Stainles...ht_5236wt_1163
