14-17 Mazda 3 Hatch, Borla exhaust 11918, brand new.

I bought this kit and when I got it one of my exhaust tips came from the factory welded on upside down. Borla sent me a new replacement system which is what I'm selling. I'm going to keep the original and just flip it 180 and weld it back.

$500 shipped to you, I paid 578 which is the cheapest I found it for at the time. Brand new in the box. Paypal preferred.

FYI, this will not work on the sedan as it does not have the cutouts in the rear bumper for the exhaust tips.

Found this video to get a sense of the sound difference.

Do you think the Borla is loud enough to expect hassle from cops? I know if they want to be dicks they'll add the citation on top of whatever they pulled you over for, but is this loud enough to draw that kind of attention without driving like an idiot too?

I've never ticketed anyone for a loud exhaust in my 7 years of copping, your locals must be assholes lol. It's really not that loud IMO, I kind of wish it were a tad louder.

Agreed. It's definitely deeper but not much louder

I wish this had been posted a week ago... I just installed mine a couple days ago. This is one nice sounding exhaust, and a very easy install.

Mine however doesn't seem to be lining up properly where they say you can use factory gasket. It is allowing a small amount of air to escape at that spot and I may end up buying another gasket.

Ah thanks, I appreciate it! I'm really interested in this, where are you located? I'm new to the forums so I don't think I can PM. I'm also wondering if you might've paired this exhaust with an OVTune, and what kind of gains you got? I'm thinking about an exhaust + a tune on my 2.5L to try to push 200 HP.

No exhaust in that video was surprisingly quiet
