I totally agree. Wonder if anyone else's looked like this or if I was the lucky draw. Of course I was planning on installing these this weekend since I have tomorrow off, but now im hesitant.

That's a bit of excess filler that is normally ground down before the item is shipped.

Looks like they missed the initial grind down in their haste to get a back ordered item expedited out. It won't cause any issues but if you e-mail us we'll get you a replacement as soon as they arrive back in stock!

Take notes. This is what good customer service looks like.

I guess I know what I'm going with for my B58 downpipe.

Tiago@VRSF mind commenting on the wait time for the CP's. I see that you guys are bumping threads for the sale. Didn't know if that meant that you guys were getting restocks.

Tried sending a PM and commenting on the thread.

I really hope that isn't the case. I ordered mine in mid November and had to wait a month just to get a sloppy one
