Hi all,

I’ve done a bit of research on exhausts. I was really looking to keep my costs down and still maintain a quality product. In the end.. I went back to what I know is a quality product... Fast Intentions. I had it on my Q60 before getting the Q50rs. I went with the Cat Back Exhaust- w/Resonated X-pipe and Touring muffler. Oh and just to top it off the Fast Intentions LDP. 🤦🏽‍♂️.

4-6 weeks out is what the website states, anyone experiencing shorter lead time’s? Or have they been 4-6 spot on?

thanks

I ordered mine at the very first of March and was quoted mid July ship date. Kevin said Covid has them behind some.

LDPs are currently 4-6 weeks. CBEs are 14-16 weeks.

You must be getting a referral fee from Invidia. You should register as a Vendor.
I just have regrets not getting it myself. Trying to help others! If I could do it all over, Invidia CB, MR LDPs, done with UDP-back for just over $1,000. Unbeatable.

I went with this exhaust and LDP set up, very happy with it. Relatively quiet, low key, which is what I wanted. Still makes me a little nervous around cops, cuz it def doesn't sound stock.

Well, I knew that there would be lead times of course. 4-6 weeks, this is in understandable. 14-16 weeks is way more than I had expected. I could cancel the Cat back and go Ptatohed route, I’ve had Invidia too when I had my STI. I’m guessing this brand would crossover well to Infiniti. Or should I wait?

My understanding of FI's hand-built products is your CBE order had a non-refundable $500 deposit when you ordered it and the rest is billed 3-5 days prior to the order being completed. You can cancel your order but it will cost you.

When I was shopping i narrowed down to FI and ark. Ended up FI, but ark was tempting as it was in stock and probably almost as good. At least from reviews and videos/sound clips. The X pipe in the FI is what it’s all about though.

I did speak with Kevin and Brad today, both super nice. Since I’m a returning customer they won’t charge me if I decided to cancel.

From talking with them today, it seemed like they would going beyond a 12-14 week lead time as they are flat out and it’s only ramping up now.

Even if you did eventually take receipt of the FI CBE, and had grown tired of waiting and purchased a different brand in the meantime, enough present and new Q owners would buy it from you in a heartbeat if advertised in the forum classifieds, based on past experience.

I should order several CBEs and sell them for a nominal fee when they finally show up.
