imho....other than being knock off crooks, some of their crap apparently looks & some sound OK... :rolleyes:

...but why would anyone pay high european prices for something without the German engineering, R&D, when at their core they have none of their own and are just based on a series of knock offs? ouich

:dunno: to each his own

for where they are made, look at post #4;

I never really understood why people were knocking the K made exhaust. I did not hear of any complaints. It reminds me of how people viewed "made in japan" in the 50's and 60's. I say if the quality is there, go for it. I do understand the rational of why pay for Euro price, if its not made in Europe. It should be cheaper, not for quality, but for exchange rate.

I personally don't like the oval tips, I'm a round tip fan. I'd prob go with eisenmann/eisenhaus/whatever exhaust had I not picked up the ASR exhaust, esp at the price I paid. E-race sounds great but alot of stuff does once u start added
the other components such as xpipe, cat delete, resonator, etc.

I think you are mising the point. I have NO PROBLEM with where they are made at all. I'm sure there are quality exhausts made in Korea/Japan, wherever. I also understand that the quality in workmanship of some of the constructed exhausts is good as well. So if someone buys them and is happy with the product, good for them...

...however, the PROBLEM is, they MARKET themselves in a FRAUDULENT manner, as if they were something different from what they are;
