Question Klarius exhausts - are they any good?

CarParts4less have got 17% off this weekend.

I'm pondering a cat back Klarius exhaust but I don't know if this is a decent make. Any thoughts?

Centre section - https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/cp4l...7f430ed&000430
Back box - https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/cp4l...bb80cb1&000536

That works out at £88.39 with the 17%.

I've got one on my ZTT..
Seems OK for the money and a decent fit, obviously not the same quality as factory fitted but then that seems general for most parts for these cars now. I suppose that if you are looking for top quality then go custom stainless.
Cheers Ian

My original exhaust back-box lasted 10 years . I replaced it with a klarius which lasted about 7 years , and have recently replaced that with an unknown brand which I am assured is Timax in disguise .
The Klarius was good value for money at the time .

Go for a custom stainless stell, like those of MIJ Exhaust. I've got one, the whole line, it's fantastic & not at all noisy.
A tad more expensive but a no brainer, and that will last at least as long as the car, maybe longer... I prefer to pay once only & drive quiet no limit.

Thanks Chris. The Klarius is pretty good value now at £88.

I've actually got a Bosal back box which I never fitted. I'm just wondering whether I should try using it with a new Klarius middle section** - or just buy both Klarius bits and ignore the Bosal.

(** The Bosal and Klarius might not join together too well).

It's a question of £££s really. If you don't mind me asking, what did the MIJ stainless cost you?

By "the whole line", do you mean the cat as well?

Bosal is a major muffler manufacturer (not saying it is equal, better or worse than Klarius), so why not just put it on since you have it. If it was meant for your car then the inlet size should match your pipe.

Cheers,

Very good value for money.
Besides I agree with you, it's a question of £££ but if you think of it closely not that much for a whole device that should last long & make you happy & quiet.
It's just a question of spending only once maybe a tad less than you might have spent on the long run in 2 or three swaps as it appears within the posts above.
EDIT: I haven't got any shares in the factory...
