Hi All,

Saw this video yesterday, I thought they sounded good a nice little mod and addition. I did have to agree with you about the tips they do need to be a little bigger. :thumbs:

Enjoyed that pal, considering what they are I wouldn't be looking to pay no more than what you have.

Someone correct correct me if I am wrong, you loose back pressure with short tails which will also affect emissions and performance, I agree that they improve the exhaust tone and its less costly than ark grip as a example ;)

I’ve got the Tarmac Resonated ones on my nismo with the burnt tips, they sound and look awesome! 

 

Definitely worth giving them a look at mate.

Cheers guys will look at Tarmac Sports for some.

 

Will these increase car insurance if declared?

 

 

Thanks

You must declare them if required on your insurance contract, else you run the risk of finding yourself uninsured.

First post... I've just fitted these. Got them off eBay for £275 delivered. Their website had them at £249.99 with free postage at £250 (typical) and postage was £350 in the UK!!! Strange. 

 

Anyway. I think they're very good quality for the money, handy you get gasket and bolts with it. Unfortunately I had to grind off the originals as it'd rusted really badly under there. 

 

I am surprised at how loud they are. I'm used to having loud with my old Aprilia RSV, Kawasaki ZX10R etc., but I think these are a bit too loud for my liking for a car. But I will keep them on as standards just far too quiet. 

 

They also stick quite far out of the back of the car.

 

Will post pics within next week.

Most get quieter over time once there is some soot lining the exhaust. Mine were asbo for 3 weeks then it got quieter. Resonated is the way to go

Fitted a pair of these last week to my roadster. Stick out a bit further than standard, but sound so much better! Good vfm I reckon.

Yeah. Spoke to Malian. They are made to fit both GT and Nismo. At least they are not central; I have scars from my 2016 Focus ST to prove that that's not a good idea when wearing shorts! :doh:

I bought a set of these.. well made (suspect Chinese) but alignment is very poor, as you can see.. the tail pipe is mounted hard against the bumper cut-out.

 

Took it up with Malian (Kage Trading) by email as you can't speak to them on the phone :thumbdown:

 

No joy yet as they say the issue is with my car, not their exhaust (mine is a 370Z with 3,000 miles on it, so I doubt there's an issue there!!)

 

Will update this thread if a solution works itself out..

 

Its worth also noting that the exhausts come very poorly packed for shipping with, both silencers and tail pieces suffering dents and scuffs in transit.

Ditto. The fit is very poor on passenger side and they stick out too far on a non Nismo, I removed mine but UK Seller refused return. They are still sat on my patio table.

Interesting.. I bought mine direct from Malian (Kage Trading) but mine will definitely going back, by hook or by crook!

 

Hopefully people will read this post and learn from collective misery!

 

Exhausts and the noise vs drone balane is a nightmare, and I hoped I'd found the solution.. the search continues!

Final footnote to this thread..

 

'Kage Trading' (Malian) refuse to accept a product back once sold, they are not contactable by phone and doon't answer your emails if you have an issue regarding their (probably Chinese) imported systems.

 

As their behaviour all falls foul of consumer law, I'll be resolving matters with this process.

 

So, just be warned!

Thats not good news, hopefully you get it sorted, if not some body who fabricates exausts should be able to rectify it, i know you shouldn't have to go down that road

Thanks, I don't need the extra grief in my life, so ended up cutting some wedges out of the flange to silencer pipes and tigging them up, so they're fine now.

 

I ABSOLUTELY would not recommend dealing with this company though!!
