Ok..... I have a complaint with this exhaust.
Once I first got it, I loved it and couldnt stop staring at it. I kept it on my car for a couple months. I took it off my car yesterday to keep it since I sold my car today. When I was taking it off, I realized that the welds on one of the hangers are giving out.
I am curious if VF can do anything about it because I cant really put it back on my new Exige.......

I will get some pictures up of it tomorrow. It really was quite an upset considering the amount paid for it and the fact I bought it straight from VF

Thanks Jermaine, I will send you an email right after this with my information. Its really cool that you all would take care of it.

Here are the pictures for those who asked to see it on the thread. Its wierd, as in they almost welded the hangers onto a chrome coating, and the the chrome coating is what gave way.

I had a similar failure on a $2400.00 Titanium Arqray. It can happen to any system, Have you put stiffer engine mounts yet? I highly recommend it. The stock mouts are like Taffy and the motor rocks a lot putting stress on the exhaust hangers and joints.

No, I did not have upgraded engine mounts. The elise it was on was pretty much stock except for this exhaust. I will make sure to keep that in mind though when I get my new one and put it on the Exige.
Maybe it would be good for VF in the future to put a small disclaimer saying they recommend upgraded engine mounts with use of this exhaust. If that really was the cause.

I would almost never recommend stiffer engine mounts. I can't stand the way they make the vibrate.

The black one in the YouTube video? I watch that one once in a while when I can't drive my car just to get my fix.

I love the exhaust note on my car. Once in a while on the freeway when I am cruising, I blip it just to hear it roar.
