Harmon, I assume you also bought something branded from JD.
No these are no branded headers. Locally fabricated headers. Iam refraining myself to mention names from whom I got this FFE done on the open forum. I guess I should be more careful the next time and dont get duped into things. A lesson learnt the hardway. Iam sure the guy made a good 7k out of this deal.

One big way this forum helps us all.

But as long as you are satisfied with it, that is all that matters.

Well! satisfaction depends on what you paid for. But for something which is not worth that much well, you need to be in my shoes to know how i feel over an over priced product.

Very true T-BHP protects and help people out of the ditch. What I learnt is we need to know the boss than the person second to the boss.

the cost of the headers + FFE in my car is higher than the resale value of my car - but i would still say that i am happy with it. the exhaust note has gone down drastically compared to the previous setup in my car.

i thought it would cost around 6K but paid 5k more. but at the end of the day - i am happy with it.

did you fit the FFE before or after joining Team-BHP ? If you did after, then you really lost it. there are a few members from chennai on this forum who could have helped you out regarding the price etc. Maybe it is time you came out for a team-bhp meet.

I had just joined T-BHP then. And contacted a brand known and recommend on some of the threads on the Forum. Well! Iam not holding the forum though, well sometimes the members have to be a little responsible too. But still got taken for a ride believing the guy for the brand he was with.

Hi Busa,
ELECTRA has nothing to do with this. Its a another brand.

Hey Esteem-Lover, will be very happy to see you guys sometime.

I think I know the second fiddle u're referring to.Have heard not so good things about his practices. Hope the top management has noticed and corrected it.

Anyways, this "aftermarket exhaust" business is quite american to my POV.
They're being sold by the value of bhp coming out and not the value of raw material and manufacturing costs.

Hi Nitrous,
Lets not get into any assumptions and misunderstanding of the wrong person just in case. No offence to anyone. I respect all the car performance parts and shop community. Dont want to bring anyone or a brand down because of an individual's mistake and who is not that important to the brands either.

Felt sore about the price and shared my experience with you guys, thats all it is.

Thanks guys..... and thanks to you Nitrous for understanding.
