Lukey is definately the way to go in my opinion - would be worth the week wait.

Previously I had a Redback one which ended up getting rusted out with holes etc in it Though it was on their for 6 years aint to bad. So I ended up getting another brand of 2-1/2 Exhaust from the Cat- back for my EL last week S & F $340 at Midas. So $200 sounds like a Bargain

So a system is not the full exhaust? imho,it begins at the head,and ends beyond the rear bumper!


Personally I'd agree with that, but it seems general p[ractice to just refer to the cat back as teh exhaust system.

Midas are thieves!

Buying an exhaust from them is like buying a windscreen from Obriens, it's for people who watch tv and can't be bothered looking up the yellow pages and making a couple of calls.

Must be like the place i went to and got quoted $340 for a 2 1/2" catback wit 1 muffler. So it does pay to shop around.

I got quoted $360 from 2 places and $380 from another for 2.5" catbacks with 1 box and fitted.
I bought a 2nd hand Lukey off ebay the other day with a tip for $120.

Then got quoted $75 -100 for joining and fitting.
The bloke who said $100 said I was "dealing with the s**t stuff" after I said it was a Lukey. Wanker.

I mentioned it in another thread, asked some legit questions about shipping and fitting it, and got a reply of "mate whateva, u like wasting my time?"

So yeah they screwed up considering they only had 5 feedback at the time, sooner or later, they'll piss another client or potential client off.

Think the webside of things is run by some little a***, joel. It's funny how people say stuff over the web, but I guarantee they'd rethink it to say to some of us in real life.

All s**t aside, I hope it works out for ya mate. ;)
