    HSD-IL affordable CLA45/GLA45 downpipes (less than half the price)

    So i recently came accross this https://www.hsd-il.com/ website and noticed they use stainless steel to make some really cheap downpipes, unfortuneatly i couldn't find any AMG downpipes there but i found some of theirs listed on Ebay (for AMG). So i contacted them to see what's up and they said they're working on their website and will have it listed. They seem to be legit at my glance but i haven't seen reviews on them, anyone with any experience with HSD-IL?

    Never heard of them honestly.

    How big of a discount are we talking here? You often get what you pay for...

    I mean if you look at the price of a DP from AMS Alpha then it'll set you back around 1000$. However from HSD-IL it costs around 300-400$
    It's not a complex part like a turbo, its job is simply give path smoothly to the exhaust, so if they are using stainless steel (as they claim) and can insure no leaks. then i wouldn't understand paying around 3x more for practically the same thing.

    That is a significant difference.

    You said hook him up with downpipes plural implying you are a source that sells them...
