Re: 2015 or 2017 model?

having the same issue .. i watch the road not the dash so dont really care about that. not sure how much i would ever use the electronic upgrade packages available on the 17.. i mean we are talking the price diff of carbon rims which really make a difference and i have no desire to deal with key fobs.

Re: Well, This happened.

i never had this problem when i built r3 exhausts.. you just add a additional piece making it a pyramid / upside down v type contact on the muffler.
