depending on what material you get as a new catback Stainless usually had a limited lifetime warrenty on it... aluminized cat backs you'll get maybe 5 years + or - a few in my area (salty roads in winter)

I was thinking to get the focus sport catback baut I'm not sure if is better to get the ceramic coated. $400 for the catback that last 3-5 years seam to me to much. Tell me if I'm wrong.

Get the Magnaflow Stainless Steel cat-back. Great value, and stainless doesn't rust!

But do they offer a 4-door version of the exhaust? And where the heck do I get one in Ontario, Canada?

Not better then a MAGNAFLOW (I would say damn near equal though).

The PACESETTER is one of the worst catbacks out there. It's not made of stainless steel like the majority of others so it'll literally rust off your car.
