Thumbs Up New Rogue IKON on M Tech II Coupe

So I got my Rogue IKON exhaust about 6 weeks ago, but this was the first time since then I had free time and the car is clean!

The only negatives about the exhaust is that the pipes of the new exhaust were about 1/4 to 1/2 to long on the end where it attaches to the oem exhaust, the exhaust shop just trimmed it a little and it was perfect. Also the hangers must be used in the position which would make the IKON sit up the highest, and the bolts must be tightened at that position or the exhaust will hang to low.

Exhaust sound is completely up to the person, I think it sounds good and this is the loudest I'd want an exhaust to be, I can't imagine how loud the UUC TSE3 must be. Also the exhaust gets louder the more it's driven i.e. quiter when engine is cold (morning start) compared to when at operating temp; and it is a quite noticeable difference.

Here's a bunch of pictures!! I think it looks sick on the car

Haha, I was looking at your car and thought it had the ZHP option. I was going to tell you the dealership jipped you with a replica lip spoiler, until I saw it posted as a 325ci. Muffler looks good and car looks great!

you know I originally bought these b/c they were the cheapest tires I could get from Costco (wanted to get from Costco b/c of lifetime road hazard, balance, etc...) but after all I really like them, this is my second set of rears. They have a AA traction rating so as you can imagine they are great in the rain and they seem to have an additional layer on the inside where the tread is and I get even wear across the tire. I originally had the Potenza RE040 (I think) which were also great but i got uneven wear (center wore more than outsides) and they lasted only about 9,000 miles, where the BF Goodrich last about 13,000 miles. and of course each bridgestone cost more.

^^Thanks guys!! I still have it on the car and it still looks great! There is no rust anywhere on the kit, and the tips are not cracked or anything (I heard atleast one persons double walled tips got a crack)

The only thing that shows signs of rust are the added little peices to the tubing that connect the new tubing to the original exhaust, these peices were welded on the new exhaust from Rogue. Those 6 inch peices are needed since the new exhaust tubing is larger than the tubing of the oem exhaust.

The bigger tips looks soooo sexy on the car and the sound is awesome too!
