delkevic exhaust quility issues

Postby linsteve1 » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:48 pm

Hi all has any fellow member bought a set of exhaust from Delkevic I have had 2 sets now the first was a set of B grades which I sent back because the baffle plate welds were easily seen the second set were a A grade set which were as bad as the B grade set http://www.kettlechttp://www.kettleclin ... w&id=24546

That's not good :?
Bought a set for mine second hand years ago,
Not show quality, but I'm happy with how they look, the sound is definitely different than OEM.
Cheers.

Baz is the expert on Delkevics, remember him saying that the second generation sets are much improved on sound and quality, perhaps they've fobbed you off with another lower quality set, I'd be on their case pronto :x
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

Does not A or B grade suggest below standard, I have bought electrical goods on this basis and generally A or B have marks, defects, parts missing excetera

I bought a full set of B grade off them after they said they were near perfect and thought I had landed a bargain at £800. When they arrived the quality was shocking, ful of speckles and weld marks like yours. I phoned him up and told the guy what I thought and took them back personally to show him. He showed me a set of A grade and they were the same, so I got a refund :o
