Terms and Conditions of Sale
1) DAMAGED ITEMS OR WRONG PARTS SELECTED
i) All our products are supplied in new condition and we do are utmost to ensure that they arrive with you in the same condition.
Every exhaust is wrapped in bubblewrap and packed in a double-wall cardboard box and carefully sealed with a combination of staples, banding and tape for added protection. However, despite this – and due to the bulky nature of many of our items – there are rare instances where the items may become damaged in transit or mishandled by couriers. In some instances, there may be slight imperfections or minor scratches, as this is a purely cosmetic problem and does not affect the performance or application of the product in any way, we do not constitute this as a reason for return. If the item arrives with significant damage or the packaging has been compromised, then please contact us immediately and we will sort out a replacement item ASAP.
Please provide clear photos with any damage within 24 hours of delivery, including any damage to the packaging so that we can place a claim with the courier.
ii) In instances where the wrong part has been ordered and you have attempted to fit or modify the exhaust, we regret we will not be able to accept the return. If you are unsure whether a specific item will fit your car then please check with us before purchasing and we can confirm whether the exhaust will fit based on the information provided.
Please note that certain year models can have different parts fitted, we will do our best to advise on fitment based on the fitment guides we have but these are not definitive. Always check measurements and existing part numbers before fitting.
2) DISPATCH AND DELIVERY TIMES
i) We aim to dispatch all orders same-day when ordered before 1pm (Monday-Friday).
ii) We cannot pass on delivery-specific information to our couriers. When purchasing the item, if you leave your phone number or email address, a text or email will be sent to you upon dispatch containing your delivery information. From here, you can track your delivery and also select items such as leaving the item with a neighbour or leaving the item in a safe place in case you are not able to receive your item.
iii) Once the item has been dispatched we will not be able to change the delivery address without incurring an additional delivery charge. If you wish to change the address after the item has been dispatched, we may be able to do so, however the fee will have to be paid by the purchaser.
iiii) While we endeavour to have our shipping information up to date, certain remote locations or addresses outside the UK may be surcharged. Please contact us before purchasing if you’re unsure whether your location may be effected by this.
3) GENERAL INFORMATION
i) If you are planning work on your car we recommend that you wait until you receive your item to make sure that you are 100% happy with the item and confident that it will fit your vehicle before you begin any work. We accept no liability for any costs associated to labour or fitting, including unforeseen delays in shipment or delivery.
ii) Certain exhausts are not designed as a direct fit for any car and therefore may require additional parts or modification. Exhausts that require modification will explain this within the description. We always recommend that your exhaust is fitted by a fully qualified motorsport mechanic.
iii) All of our exhausts are sports/performance exhausts and should be treated as such. This means that you will notice an increase in noise from your vehicle which can vary depending on the vehicle you have. We cannot accept returns if you consider the exhaust “too loud” for your vehicle. We regularly update both product listings and our YouTube Channel so that you can have an idea of how the exhaust may sound before purchasing.
iiii) Our exhausts have been developed mainly for race and competition use. As such, they have not been emissions and decibel tested for road use. In most circumstances, the exhaust will be fine as long as used in conjunction with an additional silencer such as your existing centre silencer. However, we can offer no guarantee that the car will pass an MOT.
