    Re: Vroom Vroom...

    What if the exhaust installer were to see this discussion ?

    During the arbitration hearing was there ANY mention of CF and the advice given therein ?

    Well for the record, I was kidding.

    No reference to CF specifically, just that I know of several people on a forum that have installed the same system on the same car without issue.

    The ding dong is welcome to read anything I've posted here about him and his laughable work.

    Sorry it didn't work out completely.... But at least the ruling was in your favor and you got something. I call it a win.

    Was it a small claims court? I think you yourself should collect the money right? Hope at least it goes easy.

    How is your case against the city about your damaged wheel going?

    It was small claims court. I have to find out what to do next on Monday.

    Get this, if the city's insurance company decides that the city was negligent in fixing the pothole, they DON'T pay... . So I guess I'd have to take the city to court in that case? I may be out. $600 there too...'

    This can be different from state to state, but my understanding is that there is very little enforcement in collecting small claims court judgment.

    It seems that you may need a good lawyer for both cases! I know a good one in your city; Alan Shore @ Crane, Poole & Schmidt!

    Looks like you were awarded the cost of the damaged pieces- resonator & tips.
    The hanger can be cut off & welded under the pipe. The mufflers are useable.

    Why would the hanger need to be cut and welded?

    It's over the pipe & needs to be under.
    Or does the pipe need to be turned 180?

    The pipe has already been turned 180.

    The resonator was damaged when the pipe was upside down, because it caused the system to hang too low.

    The amount I wan would pay for a tip and the resonator. The problem is, both tips, the resonator, and the mid section are all damaged, they're hesitant to sell me that many parts (the parts are only supposed to be available for warranty repair or to replace defective ones), and if they did, the warranty will still be void.

    I don't get how they decided that I should have to pay more than $700 out of pocket get back to where I started (a new, uninstalled system) before this idiot ruined it.

    If they won't sell you only the parts you need, they're worse than the butcher that installed it.
    What exactly does the warranty cover, anyway? It's never gonna rot out.
    The only thing that can happen to it is road damage & that's what you have.

    Re: Vroom Vroom...

    Seems like an awful lot if interest in exhaust systems lately ............. so here's another look - Post #82.

    EDIT on 04/16/15 - This system was installed in 11/06 and today it looks exactly the same as in this picture - including the inside of the tips. There are some pictures missing due to storage space.

    (and a further edit on 05/27/15 - entire system is still squeaky clean. Remember: I run the dog snot out of this car.)
