    Hey guys! Noob here and I'm lookin at performance parts for my mini S I'ma be picking up soon. Small question: why are downpipes so freakin expensive!? Do they really help the car perform that much better? I'm used to German price tags comin from a VW but never have I seen something so outrageous! Is there something I'm missing? Cheers

    They do make power, but they are pretty hard to get right, you should see the jigs we made to hold them to get it to fit.
    There are other parts you can start with to make power too.

    So because it's a tight fit it's expensive? Idk... It was ur site I was looking at too that told me to call for price. Is it worth it?
