I took the punt and ordered a set of VRSF down pipes. Got them for under $400 inc shipping to Melbourne. From ordering to receiving them took 2.5 weeks.
When I got tyres a fortnight ago from Tyrepower Hawthorn, they recommended Active Motorwerke in Clayton, as their head specialist "Jin", used to work for BMW & was renouned as being one of the best. They are a BMW & Mini specialist, doing servicing, mechanic repair, upgrades etc.
I got the VRSF DP's installed by Active Motorwerke today. I rang Steven to set up a time yesterday, and they managed to fit me in for today.
They fit RHD 135i's fine! A little more adjusting the rest of the exhaust etc, but when all bolted together, there was no issue with clearance.
In my opinion, for just under $400 fully shipped, the VRSF DP's are awesome value.
Anyone in Melbourne I strongly recommend Steven & Jin from Active Motorwerke in Clayton (www.activemotorwerke.com.au
). The guys really knew their stuff & were fantastic to deal with - I'll be using them again that's for sure.
I was also informed by Tiago that VRSF are going to bring out a slightly modified version for the RHD market. I don't know when, or what's actually different, but I can say for certain that the current ones fit!!!!!
AR Design DP's = $895 inc Aus delivery inc GST from BMR
VRSF DP's = $400 including shipping
Both fit 135's!
