    What about MS? I heard they make a good pipe, although AR has been around our community longer and probably deserves the bone if they want it. They just gotta get their prices down a bit from the last time I checked, mind you that was a long time ago. Terry, do you or who makes your dps?

    Ours are made overseas and are a high volume & slow to deliver operation. Not a good choice for a low volume project like this. You need a fabrication shop like AR for it.

    This the general consensus.

    Probably what it really comes down to is paying for quality. I'd give AR Design my money.

    my dps are AR and is of the best I have assembled (and I've installed dps of different brands on many 335i).


    If the dps that they will manufacture for our kits v63/67 are AR, I'll be 100% happy and quiet. Click here to enlarge

    Yes, I have the same problem with my 535i AR downpipes. They welded the AR logo plate at the wrong spot!!!!! Both pipes are touching each other and created rattles because of the AR plate. Ultimately I have to cut out the AR logo plate in order to fit properly.

    My car is picky about DPs and only the CP-Es fit. Weird I know.

    Successful troll is successful. Come on man, it's either that 2JZ thing or saying N54 > S65 that gets you riled up faster than a choir-girl at a honky-tonk. ( I heard a friend use that phrase once back home, I think it applies here)

    Choir girls get me riled up.

    Trust me, you haven't seen riled up. Or maybe you have.
