Is it ok to buy a used high performance exhaust?

I was offerred a high performance exhaust for M5 that was specifically designed and tuned for racing. The price is 25% to 30% lower than the brand new one.

Since there are no moving parts in an exhaust and therefore no cause for wear and tear, do you think its alright to take in this offer?

I'm also wondering if this kind of exhaust are all bolt on and no more welding or anything like that.

I do not see any problem with it. Lots of board members have bought used exhausts.

They are all bolt-on, you just have to use a clamp to secure the exhaust to the pipe where you cut the old one. In theory you would weld, but I dont know why anyone would want to do that.

I'd buy one used. Like you said theres no moving parts, and I dont see a problem in it.

Nothing wrong with buying used exhaust, there is a few items to check first....1. the obvious, rust ??? stainless is good, look for dents, striped bolts, bent clamps, if your getting cats also, look inside to see if the grids are loose or broken, check the mufflers and resonators for loose baffles inside they can rattle....other than that, go for it, but 40% off is proper......

I've bought and sold used exhaust in the past. The only reason I did not buy used was nobody was selling when I bought mine. Specially when your saving $$

Oneandonly exhaust

The used exhaust is selling for $4,000. I still have to check if that includes headers, pipe, and or just the main exhuast. My impression is its a complete system.

How much usually you have to spend for a complete exhuast system from the US for brands such as Eiseman from headers, pipes, to exhaust. Is that going to be around $8,000
