Nice deal MadDad. This time delay has been fine for me, especially since it now saved me $50! I ordered dp's about the same time and should receive them in a day or two. Since I ordered SS tips this axleback won't take much longer than already designed dp's did.

Hoping for this month. We need to coordinate getting our test car back in the fabrication shop. While that sounds easy it's sometimes difficult aligning our customer/fitting car and our fabricator on the same day. The past couple of weeks nothing really got done because our fabrication shop was moving into a new warehouse/building. They were working but not a normal schedule so some of the development stuff just stood still for the past couple of weeks.

You guys with SS tip units, your exhausts will be shipping tomororw. Your orders will be processed this evening. Just got off the phone with our shop and they are done. I've also got one of these coming to me and since it's a final version I will grab sound bites from it but some of you might beat me to the punch and that would be fine by me.

Jesse 135i - Just PM'd you back but for everyone's knowlege, the intermediate pipes are taking a while. Not due to any technical build issues...we just haven't been able to time things with the test car and our fabricator to have them both with availability on the same day to finish the part.

SS Tip axlebacks are available. The $649.95 price will be valid through May then things will revert back to standard pricing. We have 2 ceramic coated tips units available as well. One is on it's way to me(finally) and pics will be posted as soon as I have them.

I just saw the first quick reivew of the first axleback we sent out. Looks like a customer might have his clips up before us which is crazy, but then, the whole built up was a little nuts and there was no sense in me posting clips that were not from the final production product. In the end we made 3 different versions of the axleback before we settled on what the final sound would be. Some long awaited clips should be up soon. Here is the link to the quick review that was just posted

Are the ceramic coated tips made to look black like the stock ones?

Glad to hear that people are already getting the exhaust. Now we just need to get the clips up before the end of May so I can get the intro pricing.

Rich, where do we stand with this sound clip?

I want to get this exhaust at the intro pricing but I cannot commit without hearing the final product. Help me give you my money.

Rich-

I wanted to check out your website but it appears to be "down". Do you have the cat-back pictures yet?

I don't think he replies on this thread anymore since it shows he logged in yesterday but has not answered any questions.

BTW, if you just happen to see this Rich I sent an email two days ago, via your website, and have yet to receive a reply.

We were closed last week. There was an auto-responder on the email so emails sent should have had an automatic response. I did long in for a minute from my hotel but didn't have time to do any posts.

Long awaited better clips will have to wait one more week. I won't be getting the new unit on this weekend. Forgot about the holiday weekend and the wife already had plans. I know we'll sell quite a few exhausts once I have better clips posted so it's still something high on my radar.

In regards to the intermediate pipe to complete the catback, that is on hold for the next month. We've had a few projoects going on at the same time and we've had to switch priority to get out or 08+ STi catback out in time for a trade even in mid June. This project started well before the 135i exhaust and it has to be completed before the show. I want the intermediate pipe for my own car so as soon as it's possible we will turn our attention back on that piece.

I know that everyone will still want audio clips from me, sorry, I don't have anything worth posting and I have added downpipes now. Anyways, I had a few more mods completed this week (dps, kw v1's, strut bar) and I'd still say that adding an axleback was my favorite mod so far. To me it's the best mod other than a tune (which I'm waiting to do after I get more use out of my warranty). The Maddad seems to give me a deeper but quieter sounds than most of the others. Catless downpipes didn't make it much louder except under certain circumstances (ie cranking, idling, WOT, etc).

I didn't receive the auto-response unless it was lost in my SPAM messages on Yahoo. Otherwise, I would have waited and sent another email after you were back in the shop.

It is a shame that everyone waiting for the better clips, myself included, will no longer get the $649 price.
