i have a question. i've seen a lot of those mufflers with the smaller pipes coming out of the muffler. is that functional or just for looks? or is that a sound damperer.

and i can feel you on the sand and salt, i'm from mass and my paint takes a beating

nice car though, its really clean and nothing that really sticks out of place

very nice pictures! :)

but ok... now that i've got someone who HAS that style exhaust ... i've got a bone to pick with ya - and anyone else who has tips like that.


you've got the aftermarket exhaust - good. I imagine that the piping is 2.5" all the way, but then what is up with the two big cannons out the back? I notice that the exit hole is like....hella tiny! doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose?
just curious... i've always wanted to know.

other than that... nice car! i like the tread of the tires :thumbsup:


edit- hahahah bayeri we posted at the same time... you don't know either huh? :biggrin:

its a sound damperer. without those pipes installed its like running 2.5" straight back with no muffler.

o man i want to be in florida now.
its too cold and always raining in upstate NY

i had those exhaust in my last ride, without the silencer its hella loud
in my honest opinion they dont look good. I like the borla ones much better

im glad whoever you bought your rims from didnt sucker you into Nankangs... I saw the tread pattern and i was like 'ohh no...' but its merely similar.

whats wrong with nankangs?
i am just wondering cus the shop i got my rims from, charged me for some nankangs but were out of stock or something.
Instead I got Federal SS 595 tires.

Nankangs arent performance tires, they just have a fancy tread and chinese name. they also provide NO RIM LIP PROTECTION WHATSOEVER, judging by how frankly TRASHED the Voxx rims i bought from Diesel over the summer were.

edit: look up the nankang website. that should contribute some insight as to the quality of their products.

I really like the exhaust setup. How much did it run you? Also.. I think your car looks great! Black all the way!
