A couple reasons - all related to a different car and NOT Challenge's products so this is nothing related.

1) Too loud for my personal taste as a daily driver. I would always get a loud drone in the low rpm range that drove me crazy. And the cold startup shook the house. lol
2) CEL would always come on. I was able to reset it using the Torque app and bluetook dongle but it was still annoying.
3) Very dirty. My exhaust tips would get dirty as all hell in one day.

My ONLY concern is the overall volume of the Challenge setup. There's no way to tell unless you hear it in person. For the average person, I'm sure its perfect but I use my car sometimes for business and in my other car, it was sometimes difficult to take a call in the car it was so loud. If I need to take a customer to lunch, I don't want it too loud for them if that's not their thing, and I don't want my neighbors looking at me crazy like with my last car.
