LOL Tim, if I was acting like a school girl I would be calling and demanding my money back. Sorry I dont bow down to you on this forum Tim but I am just trying to fix a very annoying and at this point costly problem. Remember I had a 2002 M5 with muffer delete and that car had Magnaflo tips and zero howl or whislte like this car. Not saying anything other then I installed these, have an issue and trying to resolve it. I know better then to text you personally at this point. Here are the pics you requested and it looks pretty jagged and that was their point. It is not very smooth. There is also a sort of cavern were the two meet and go into the straight piece as you can see. They think pulling them, grinding them down and using some more metal to smooth it out may help. Like I said, that sounds a little costly for what really shouldnt need done. I already have $280 in the install and you know what I have in the tips plus the powder coating.

The first pic is the stock into the new pipe, no lips there to make a sound. The pipe goes with the flow. The second is the pip into the tips, no lip there.

What I see is "sugaring" from welding on the outside because the tips where not purged when welded. Normal. No different from the other 200+ sets of tips I have made. The only time you really need to purge a weld is when you are sanitary welding pipe, which I do at work all day long.

I know what you have in the tips too Marcus, CONSIDERABLY less than what anyone else paid on this forum. I was less than pleased, you know that. Texting or calling me and demanding your money back would have done nothing considering the way you have treated me over this whole deal. That does not mean I would not have offered my opinion on helping to fix the problem.

Pull them off and put on the Magnaflows. I will survive the pain of you not having my tips on your car....... Then when they rust out in a year, you can buy another set and have them put on as well.

You paid $280 to have them clamp them on? You got owned. I paid $100 to have mine properly welded on........

If you think grinding down the "mountains" would help, walk out to your garage, take off the clamps, get a file, file down the "mountains", and put them back on.

Yes, I paid to have them clamped on so when an issue like this arrose, I could simply have them taken off. Pretty smart huh. Im sure yours are properly welded and mine are properly clamped. The Magnaflos are $120 a pair so I could go thru 2 sets of rusting and still have only what I have in these. That was not my goal, I actually like the tips but it is obvious you get really offended when someone complains about your product. I am just looking for a fix actually. So are my clamps causing the howling sound Tim? It it the airflo from my install? Or did a few of us get some bad tips? There is one other member in this thread that has the same issue. I bet his install is totally different then mine. The other member that had the issue already had his removed and sanded down for his resolve. Sounds like a product issue not an install issue. But once again, just looking for an resolution so I dont sound like the guy in the video above.

Not sure Marcus, there have been so few cases, which were ALL repaired by a change in the install, I just don't know.

The guy that had them "sanded down" also changed the pipe configuration, so it is hard to tell. Bdsmitty had contacted me about his issue (above poster) to which I had the exact same suggestion. Install issue. Like I said, if you think the welds are the problem, it won't cost you anything to pull them off and sand them down. Then just put them back on with the exact same install. If it fixes it, great, you can rub it in my face all you want about my crappy welds and how much of a loser I am. No one will bow down to me anymore about my AWESOME exhaust tips because I don't make them right. My heart will be broken and I won't be able to sleep at night.

I don't get offended at all Marcus, it is all in how things are communicated.

Edit:

My tips are currently clamped on as well, but are a totally different construction than yours, BUT, my clamps butt the pipe together. I had to cut mine off and clean off some melted CF wrap because it came loose from my diffuser and melted onto my tips.

I dont DIY anything Tim, you know me. I am just gonna take it back, have them do what they suggested and see if it works. If not, bdsmitty and I can rip it up at timmayfest and shoot another video like the one above, only it will look better coming from an M instead of a dragon wagon! Like I said, the tips look hot. That is why I wanted them over the others. I just really want to be able to floor the car without howling, thats all.

Hey bsmitty, post some pics of your install. I am curious to see how it looks. What do you plan to do?


P.S. Cleaned up the thread and got rid of the mountain comment. You may want to do the same.

Tim, don't say that! I want products on my car from you so I can hear my wife say "Timmay" more often.

Yesterday she asked me, "When is 'timmmaayyyy' meet-up again?" and it makes me smile everytime. If I introduce your name moreso into our household, I'll get to hear her say it more in everyday conversation.
