Hey, got a bit of a random question, but I fail to understand why exhaust systems for BA/BF/FG's and Territorys are so expensive (like $1000+) compared to a similar exhaust for an X Series or an E series (say around $150-$300) I realise they are a fair bit newer, but still, I'd have thought there'd be not much difference in the exhausts themselves. are they gold plated or something? lol, From that perspective, I'm glad I own older Falcons.

Cheers, Gab

After a quick ebay search...

Prices seem similar to some E-series exhausts...unless you're looking at stainless steel, then it's a different story.

Full exhaust systems (extractors, cat, cat back) is around the $1000 mark.

At least exhausts for the Turbo's are dear as poison, so I'm wondering if most/all of them are full stainless?
