Mufflex system just as good...replace original muffler with magnaflow and keep your stock stainless pipes in the complete system...just changing 1 set of stainless pipes for another... Kind of a waste as waste of money.. For that 550 price only benefit is 5" tips and resonator deleted...to some that's maybe worth the extra 200 bucks.. Hell... 5" tips installed is worth it.. So 550 is about right...I could never get why everyone looks to rape the car enthusiast ....
Any which way u look at it magnaflow WILL honor their product and if they wouldn't want to I'm sure there is always other ways.... I got the Mufflex 18" and love it.....same system to me in my eyes.. And all for 280.00 to my door and 30 min. And a 6 pack....
Now before everyone jumps on me.. I'm just saying getting a deal every once in a while is great and if the vendors want to stay competitive some times the have to take it on the chin..at least u move your product and get your name out there....can't make a killing every time... Make pennies on the dollar and you will get more in return over volume,
WE ARE NOT LOOKING TO RAPE ANY CAR ENTHUSIAST! Before we were a parts store all three of us were active members on this board looking for the next deal to, they come and they go, this is life. I take much offense to this as we break even on over 40% of the deals we do price matching people, we loose around 1% on about 10% of them and the rest we are somewhere between 5%-10% take out credit card processing and you are at 2%-7% margin. I do not however feel that I must explain this to you as it really is none of your business but as this is a heated thing and you have accused me of RAPING the "Car Enthusiast" I am going to anyway.
$535 is below dealer cost now, we can still give a hell of a deal, with recent price increases from magnaflow and shipping there is absolutely no way we can price match that system anymore as there was a 5% increase a couple months back on most products that come from Magnaflow some more some less, we still get one of the largest discounts in the business from Magnaflow, and the reason we do not price match that kit anymore truly has nothing to do with price, as we stopped matching it before the price increase, it came to our attention that the only part in the kit being sold on bonanza for $535 is the muffler, all the bends and piping has been switched out for aluminumized steal, vs stainless steal. I will still match almost any price, however we are not matching any 16869 kits that are priced at $599 or less if we do we loose money and we are not in the business to do that lol. We break even a lot when we do price matches and that is fine, but we can not loose a lot of money on a deal .5-1% loss is acceptable but nothing more than that. Buy your methodology we match the $535 100 times I lose over $5500 that my friend I am sorry I can not do, I will take a loss if it is minimal however this is not a minimal loss. It used to be before the price increase from Magnaflow however it is far from that now.
Sorry you do not agree with our not price matching this particular seller anymore but it simply can not be done anymore.
With that said if you find an authorized Magnaflow Dealer selling it for less let us know we will price match it, even if you do not and you just want a great deal from an Authorized Magnaflow dealer that way their is no questions if you happen to have an issue with something and can have a hassle free experience let us know.
