Angry Bad Experience with UUC TSE3

I have nothing to say about this now look at the pictures. This is the second exhaust system they shipped to me, because the they screwed up the first time too.

Hate to ask this but did you even order the right exhaust? The one they sent you is clearly for the 325/330 and your car is clearly a 323 or 328. The flanges on the 325/330 manifolds are rotated 90 degrees compared to the older 323/328.

this.

actually, I'll laugh if OP has e-bay headers for a 325/330 and just swapped the flanges.

edit: probably not headers, seeing as how nasty the manifold flanges are

I did ordered the correct one from UUC, but the warranty was through Corsa. I can't tell you what went wrong.....

well then, they shipped you the wrong exhaust.

I previously had a 328ci, with an exhaust from a 330ci, and I got little converters that bolted up to the space inbetween.

Definitely sucks and just goes to show why friends don't let friends buy UUC.

I had no problem with my TSE3 or my SSK from UUC (actually went through two SSKs). The clutch was meh, though.

^ Won't that add a couple inches to the overall length of the exhaust?

nope, the difference is the 325/330 headers were a little bit longer and had the flanges turned 90 degrees, look at his original post, the adapter I posted will simply bridge the gap to the header back because the 323/328 has the shorter headers

I see, UUCs supposed to put those in, but since mine was a warranty kit, so it got shipped directly from corsa, and they only make the ones for 325/330
