Default New pipes! Just axle-backs but love 'em!

So I just got these on eBay about a week ago and installed them right away. I'm amazed by the way they sound (not loud whatsoever) but gives the car more of a deeper rumble. Below 93db keeping them legal. The way a V8 should sound! Made of SUS304 stainless and direct bolt on. Came with all new hardware and 2 new exhaust gaskets. Very pleased with these "eBay mufflers" They VERY closely resemble the Tanabe Medallion axle-backs but at a fraction of the price! Here's a couple pics of the sexiness!

No name brand. They don't have a brand, which is weird...Because the way they are fabricated are very high quality, and the welds on them are immaculate! Got these SHIPPED for 285 bucks!

That sexiness rusted on me in 3 weeks. Not to mention how off the length were from axle back flange to muffler can on one side. I guess I got the bad pair. Seems like they have improve their quality somewhat.

Hmm that's weird. Idk if you got the same ones then because I talked to a guy that bought the same exact mufflers from the same seller and he's had his for over a year and his has no rust, and bolted on in 20 min or less and fit perfect, as did mine. No problems.

Lol what do you mean? These mufflers are smaller than the stockers I took off, or are you referring to dual exhaust not being your taste? lol Because I love dual exhaust lol

I think he is referring to the fact that you kept it dual exhaust and didn't go single

Look's great! Sure it sound wonderful too!

Typically the Megan listings are named Megan somewhere. If they don't have a name, my assumption is that these are the "Top Speed" mufflers. I've thought about getting a set, but I'm afraid they will rust. I'll check back in around March/April and see how these have held up.
