    Soooo from a happy ending to the usual BS I deal with. Took a ride earlier, went over a tiny hump in the road, and hear a loud,metallic slap against the road. I get out, look under, and the resonator is a few inches lower than it should be.....

    I drive to my regular exhaust shop, we put it on the lift, and guess what... The mid pipe is on UPSIDE DOWN! Which means the whole system tapers down from the rear because the hanger bar on the mid section is on the top instead of the bottom (the hangers WERE attached, but were just being pushed upwards and not supporting any weight).

    I took a few pictures, and immediately took it back to the shop that installed it. I showed him the picture, and he outright refused that he installed it wrong. I told him I was going to call Corsa. While I was on the phone, he walks back out of the shop, says "Aaron, you're right, I "F'd" up". He read the instructions that he still had, and saw that it was in fact upside down. He told me to pull it right onto the lift of the Meineke next door, and he'd fix it right away. I said fine, but we'd have to talk about replacing the resonator afterward. He said ok.

    I stayed out front and watched for a while, then went into the waiting room for a few minutes. Then I hear a SAWZALL!!! I run out into the shop, and he's 3/4 the way through the pipe..... WARRANTY VOID!!!

    He was apparently trying to get the system to sit further back.

    I was ready to snap his neck, but kept calm. I asked what we were going to do about the problem, and he just went off, yelling, swearing, insulting me.....

    I told him to bolt everything back on, and get it off the lift. Once it was off, I inspected it. The tips are all scratched up on both sides. What a complete disaster...

    Long story short, I'm taking them to small claims court for the price of a new system.

    Why didn't I notice the upside down pipe in the first place? Because I couldn't go into the shop for insurance purposes, and they only let me peek briefly when it was done. I talked to 3 different shops about exactly what I wanted done, and exactly how I wanted it done, before deciding on this one. They assured me it would be done to my standards. As usual for me, SO MUCH FOR THAT!

    You and i got to be related. You have the same bad luck i do. hell i was born on fri 13th of October and had my nose sliced when they did the c-section on my mom to get me out.

    Sure, I'll sell it.

    .....I just don't get why I always run into incompetent morons EVERYWHERE, no matter how much research and/or planning I do.

    Awesome, its new life will be a '93 4.9 Seville

    Out of every forum I'm on you seriously have the worst luck of anyone I've read about. I wouldn't even recommend buying a lotto ticket surely you'll win but what would happen on your way to cash it?...

    Most of the #14150 CORSA will not come anywhere remotely close to fitting a '93 anything.

    I'm fairly aware I'm most interested in the Y and after section, the rest can be fabbed by my guy. Won't be as pretty but I am very interested to hear how the 4.9 will sound.

    Damn MC do you have a please screw me shirt or something your wear around? I swear any work done by 90% of shops is screwed up. I give the hell up a long time ago. When I get too old I'll buy new with lifetime warranty from a dealer.
