Newbie: Fake HKS Carbon TI's ???

In searching for my next exhaust upgrade, i noticed most HKS carbon ti exhausts go for about $750 online. Ebay is selling the same but "universal" version for about $350, 75mm inlet and 120 out. Are these the same or fake? what is the price difference?

Thanks guys...dont want my new exhaust to fall apart in 1 week.

Yeah it's fake. The difference is in materials used and workmanship. Just depends on what you want and what you want to spend.

If there is something you really want, just save until you can afford it. Theres nothing wrong with that, and it can save you from doing something more than once, which saves many in the long run.

I've got a friend that picked up the Ebay exhaust and it had rusted and cracked at the welds after a year and about 6k miles.

I'd go with a quality exhaust. I've had my Borla for over 3 years and 30k miles without a problem.
