I ordered here and received free shipping, took about a week to arrive.
I got the exhaust installed at a local shop, they said installation was easy, but the tips were sticking out crooked in the back. I think that they had to bend some pipes a bit to make it look good. This is may be just for 2007 model(this exhaust fits 2003-3006) or it could have been incompetence at the shop(my first visit).
Nevertheless, it sounds great! It's just as the other reviewers have described the sound. Not loud enough to turn heads, but impressive to those who are listening. Fantastic purchase, I recommend this cat-back to all mazda6s owners.
Great Sounding Exhaust System
Purchased this exhaust from therpmstore and just had it installed at a local automotive shop. It sounds much better (in my opinion) than the stock exhaust. It has a throaty rumble and is not excessively loud by any means. I also installed a k&n intake and the combo sounds tremendous.
therpmstore delivered (free) in only 3 days in the original magnaflow box with no issues or damage whatsoever.
The only problem I can see is that the end of the exhaust (at the tips and mufflers) is a bit free floating and does move around a bit and can knock into the muffler. I am looking to see if there is something that I can do to make it a bit more secure.
Definite must have
I finally decided to upgrade my exhaust. Me being a daily driver I try not to do any upgrades that will come back to annoy me later. So the idea of adding an exhaust had me nervous. I didnt want something loud and obnoxious like tuner cars i have seen around the city.
These have a really distinct exhaust note that I love. On startup it is a nice low rumble. Not a loud raspy noise like some exhaust I have heard. I can pass cars on the highway and I love the sound when accelerating. Gives the car some personality but it is quiet while cruising. Doesnt attract attention of cops or anything. I can sit at the light and not hear the exhaust at all. Occasionally I rev at red lights now just to her the sweet sound it makes. The stainless steel also looks great under the car.
snow drifting with the magnaflow cat back is amazing and sounds great . not ricer at all , has a nice deep low growl .. its super smoooth. plus can feel a bit of a performance boost as well
