OBX HEADER REVIEW C63

I was curious on buying a pair of the obx headers on eBay due to the price and never really saw any reviews on them for any c63, so i received them in the mail opened up the package and at first look the pipes were so thin , literally felt like i can bend on my own, the welds are the flanges are bad and horrible, i will not put these on my car because I'm 100% they will crack under high heat, ordered a pair of MBH headers instead to avoid the headache later on.

Are you surprised? Ebay headers for a C63 is a never never plan..

Good on you for not commiting to them and getting real headers however!

Appreciate the review, but any chance of some more detailed pics?

Good choice on going with MBH. I wish I could have afforded them

ill take more detailed pictures for you guys later before i ship them back out i was able to get a full refund. they were 1200 compared to MBH 3100 and i didn't really want to spend that much on a set of headers but the quality is just so horrible it makes the 3100 worth it in the long run.

As these cars get older these OBX headers will begin to become more "Accepted" in the community, at 1/3 the price of MBH and ARH you do get what you pay for.

We offer 5 Brands of Headers which gives you the opportunity to choose the header that best fits your budget and expectations. If you want the absolute best header on the market you go with ARH or MBH, If you dont care what they look like and you just want something to make noise and cheap power then OBX is your bet.

You can find all of our headers on our website:

Had no idea you guys made headers for C63s as well. I'm surprised I haven't read any reviews about them
