Sounds/looks awesome. How much did they charge you on the exhaust? And do you have word on whether this will be mass produced?

What are your headlights doing and how do I get mine to do that? o_O (That is, only one light is lit...) Unless mine already do that and I'm just ignorant (this is possible)...

High beams arent on so ofcourse one side of the lights is off silly ofcourse yours do the same thing [clap]

Well I wish borla had plans to make a dual exhaust version but for now its only a custom modification. I would expect Borla to charge 600 or so for this exhaust.
It was around 650 fabricated and installed.

Hmm... I guess I never really looked at my headlights... the blue does look cool, though. (wait... are those blue?)
No worries and Thanks they look blue in the picture but their 100% white and to human eyes we all see white with a slight blue. but it seems the camera only picks up the blue.

Looks and sounds great. I now have 2300 miles on my new 2012 Titanium. I ordered it about 3 months ago and it took 8 weeks to get here. (I need to post some pictures) The only thing I did not order on it was the self parking package. I have made a trip from Saint Louis to Denver and got 38.6 miles per gallon on one section of Interstate 70 while I was cruising at 80 to 85 mph. Just got back from Arkansas and only got an average of 37 mpg. I am impressed with car. The Tuscan leather interior is just too cool. I did run it up to 115 mph but the cross wind in Kansas started to push me around too much so I had to back off. I would like to change the stock air filter system to see if it will give me a little better start on the low end. Any suggestions? Gene

Not a Fan of Weapon R but their Ram Air Intake kit is just awesome. Just ordered it myself.

just an FYI... you're gonna lose some power with a 2.5" exhaust. My Mazdaspeed 3 came stock with a 2.5" exhaust, and it was sufficient for the turbocharged engine, but you've greatly reduced the backpressure of your car with that exhaust by expanding the diameter so much. You should have just went with big tips, not 2.5" all the way, just my .02. I know a lot of N/A Mazda 3 guys will put the Mazdaspeed 3 catback portion on their cars, because it fits the same, and they lose some power with it. Sounds good, but power is lost.
