hey mate, sounds good!

the plastic smell is paint from underneath and other things most especially the exhaust heating up/wearing in. It can take up to a month for the smell to go away so dont stress about it dude.

sounds like a good buy and hope it sounds good too! youll find yourself speeding more now tho lol

You could've done a search but...
The comps have thinner and longer primaries
where as the normals have higher diameter and shorter primaries

comps are also a tuned length where as others aren't.

It all depends where you want your power. mid or high range.

obviously they welded your old catalytic converter back in but its still a good price esp for mandrel.

a good system from head to rear bumper i'd be looking at $800 - $1200. for those looking at getting an exhaust in the future you should also ask the shop to raise it as close they can to the floor and this will save you in the future if you lower your car or if it is already lowered. mufflers will last longer. mine sits up level with chassis rails. wagons have longer wheelbase and yet i never scrape on anything.
