Exhaust Magnaflow

Hi All this might have been covered

Have any of you just had the rear boxes replaced wit Magnaflow rear boxes only? If yes do you have have any sound clips? Also i'm thinking about lowering my car, but not sure what springs to go for and I don't want a hard ride.

All responses appreciated

Thanks,

If you search you will see a ton on each subject.

From what everyone says...Eibach isn't quite as low but nicer ride. H&R a little lower but a little harsher.

Exhaust...Are you talking about the rear muffler replacement or the resonator "box"?

btw what front splitter are you running?

Exhaust Magnaflow

I'm after the back boxes, my front splitter is CSR it's a good fit and not that expensive.

I did search on the forum for the magnaflow boxes but could not find anything

Thanks for your response

Love that front lip.

There are tons of videos online with Magnaflow and Eisenmann exhausts on 645's.

Front splitter is that Xpipe ? Why you like Magnaflow when their is Meisterchaft and Eisenmann.

Like many has already said, check out youtube.

Also, the topic about springs have been discussed countless times...eibach vs h&r. Tons of info on this board, just be prepared to do LOTS of reading. Good Luck!
