I deleted my secondaries and straight piped them. Really cool, cheap mod. Also had the pipes flanged so I can put back my secondaries if I want to in the future. Used high quality stainless steel with a trust worthy tuner who I've used a lot (multiple cars). Total job cost me 30,000 jpy (around 300$) possible to do it cheaper but why shop around and use some shop I don't know or trust to maybe save 100$, I'd rather get the job done properly and not deal with headaches later. Good luck!

I think Im gonna delete my 2nd cats, and replace with straight pipes. No need to go buy an X or an H or anything like that. Just gonna get em cut out, and replaced with 2 straight pipes.
Should be just about any damn competent shop able to do that?

How much ya figure? I just wanna make sure I don't get hosed.

Spare me the search. Ive earned at least one fast answer around here lol.
My friend did that to his c63. I couldnt believe the noise stock, and then i was blown away once he deleted just his 2nd cats and got straight pipes. I plan to do the same sometime in the near future if this deal for the c63 pans out. Hope you have some nice neighbors

Thanks! Yes and no, yes it's satin grey/ matte silver, and no not a wrap. It's one of the oringal paint colors the black series came with. I have a thread somewhere here with a few pics of her plus the mods I've done. Done a few more things that I'll be adding pics to that thread soon too.

Thats a great idea re flanging.

No interest in shopping around really, I have a couple shops in mind, but if they hit me with an "AMG tax" I just want to be prepared for it, so I can call them on it and get some sort of normal pricing.

I am away the next few days doing something fun I will probably post about, and then I will get it done next week.

So I got this done today. Found a shop that a bunch of local import guys go to. Couple old guys who have been doing it forever and could not care less what kind of car I was driving. Hence, there was no AMG tax. Cost me $150 plus tax. Now I just need some time to drive and listen.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Awesome that is what it should cost. Honestly I think I can get a local shop to custom fab me an exhaust for around 300. I even thought about getting some electric cutouts for a few hundered more...new a c63 first.. The dealer is supposed to drop off that Silver C63 at my house tomorrow for a test drive. Photos to follow shortly after

Im not partial or anything but silver is literally the best color for this car. Again, not partial at all.

I think you meant to type "Stainless Steel", not just "Steel."
