    Check the parts very carefully. One of my exhaust tips ended up having a "ding". Not sure if my muffler shop can fix it, or if it should be replaced.Working with Cobb as we speak

    Aw nooo sorry to see that. I would be devastated after all that waiting. Hopefully Cobb can help you out.

    Showed it to my fab guy at work. He thinks it can be "popped" back out to look as good as new :) I think I might just do that if Cobb agrees to it.

    Ah good. Hopefully you get a discount. Just like the dented cans at the supermarket.
     
  6. Thanks, I'll give it the twice over.

    Okay, going to have my muffler shop to try and "pop" out the ding. ( should be no problem ) If that doesn't work, Cobb will ship out a N/C replacement right away. Regardless they are sending me some "swag" :) I am a purchasing agent by profession and talk to a lot of suppliers. Cobbs customer service ranks up there with the best of them. Big ups Cobb :thumbsup:

  8. That's one of the reasons I went with them. I emailed a couple of questions to them about the exhaust and they responded quickly and helpfully, not terribly common in the aftermarket parts biz.

    Hahah had that exact same problem yesterday ! Believe it or not I did get it to fit by sliding both seats way forward lol
     
  11. I put some straps around it, lowered the hatch & cinched them down on the hydraulic hatch support rod brackets. Then I drove like a little old lady to the muffler shop. I should have just had it delivered there.
    No shipping damage but a couple of the hanger brackets had stuck through the box lid. The thing is pretty! Those flanges are each10mm thick! No wonder it's as hefty as the stock system. I picked up some SS fastners and Nord Lock, wedge lock washers to use on it.
    Gotta charge the GoPro and beat it out to the shop early tomorrow. Anyone want a Cobb license plate frame?

    Haha...same here.

    The guys at the FedEx store were like "this won't fit in there". Not one to be stopped by silly things like physics or dimensions I just put the seats way forward and drove it home tucked in a squat with T-rex arms.

    Looks great! I also had to fit mine in the car like some of the above posters, moved the seats all the way forward and drove awkwardly for 45 min to the tuner shop. Just put 200 more miles on my exhaust on a road trip last night. It gets pretty nice and loud when heated up for a long time.. Sounds great though

    1st impressions.I think it looks AWESOME installed. Fills the rear cutout nicely. Sound wise, quiet at idle and low RPM. Put your foot in it, and " HELLO " Most importantly, no drone at highway speed :) There is sometimes a very nice little "burble" on deceleration. I think someone else had mentioned that as well. The sound clips I've heard are close, but believe me , SOUNDS WAY BETTER in person :cool: So between the quality and sound, plus Cobb's excellent customer service, a most excellent purchase indeed :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Sounds familiar :thumbsup:
     
  20. I'm working on a sound bite. I can't find a good spot to place the GoPro that picks up the sound well without the microphone getting oversaturated by wind or exhaust sound. I'm going to try a sock around the case to cut down on some of the oversaturation.
    The exhaust shop said it went on without a hitch. They expected that as they had done Cobb exhausts before.
    My down tube is stock. As said above, no drone. It will be louder if you have the back seats down and/or the parcel shelf out. You can get a little burble and muted pop if you work the throttle just so.
