Great news Alex and well done Phil and the guys at Topgear thumbsup

Phil, maybe a 911uk.com Topgear group buy could be possible? Thumb


I am sure they would welcome a group buy if a few were interested , well worth someone giving Alex at Topgear a call to see what they can do to accommodate a GB . and then starting a thread to gather an interested group .
The GBs have worked well that we have done with DesignLS for leather work , Haywood and scott for gen2 bypass pipes and Wicked coatings for console etc. painting.
So no reason to think that a GB wouldn't be beneficial to Topgear and 911uk members. Thumb Thumb Thumb

Lets hope in unity that Dansk sales of Porsche exhausts take a right dip in numbers and that TopGear, a British Compnay, pick up those sales Thumb

Great result. Have just been looking for silencers for mine but might miss the bypass/PSE sound I have with my current set up.

What a generous gesture and full credit to Topgear.

Customer service from Dansk is obviously non existent their attitude to customers is shocking to say the least.

When I get some dosh together to replace my PSE I will be heading straight to Topgear.

Well done Alex and Phil excellent result and more mud in the eye for Dansk.

The boxes on my 2002 C4S are starting to go, I have been doing my homework on the next replacements. This gesture from Topgear has made my mind up where my money will be going. thumbsup Nice one Phil and the guys at Topgear.

I'm still so touched by it all. Beyond generous!

Things like this usually happen to other people, not me.

I'm usually the guy led under the back of the car trying to save a few quid whilst getting wet through. I shall treasure this experience for the rest of days.

Once again - thank you Phil & Alex (@Topgear).

Smile Thumb

Alex,
I like to think it is due reward for all your hard work on behalf of all of us in finding alternative solutions to expensive Porsche parts.

Alex - STOP!

Just had an email from the guys at Topgear saying they sent them to the wrong place; they meant to send them to me, not you m8. They say they wont fit your car - they are for a C4S and for me... Hand Hand

Just pop them back in the box m8 and i'll drop by and pick them up from ya.

Cheers mucker Thumb Thumb Thumb Thumb

No problem Osh.

I didn't know yours was a 3.4 as that's what it states on the boxes Grin

Think I'll be going top gear when my OEM manifolds finally fall off. Good to hear of the level of customer service - and quality of parts hopefully

Great result.

I've got the Top Gear boxes on mine at the minute, only hassle I had was fashioning the mounting bolts as the steel on the brackets is a bit thicker than the factory boxes so the factory bolts are too short, at least they were on mine.

The weld quality looked great, I've only done a couple of thousand miles on them so wouldn't expect any problems so far. I was very happy with them.
