$2500 (let's not quibble about $5) for an exhaust is quite steep, but to not be able to service it when needed doesn't seem like a good idea.
i guess thats part of my question then... I have an unservicable exhuast setup (vibrant stainless straight through resonated muffler capped by stainless piping) thats gone through 8 summer seasons & over 30k miles... still sounds & performs like the day I had it made (not a single broken hanger either lol). I've had borla/magnaflow/ect on other toy cars in the past & those have also been non-serviceable setups & have also never needed attention in the entire life cycle I've had them installed.
does an exhaust even need to be serviceable outside of quality piping/finish? sounds more like personal preference then a necessity to me. & I guess when it comes to a quality exhaust setup, the last thing i want to have to do is 'service it' after a certain mileage point
. i guess maybe i need to dive a little deeper on the benefits of repackable exhausts in order to understand?
