I found a couple of issues with the fitment so far. one thing is that a couple of the hangers could be bent a little better. And the last attachment of the can and tip to the car is rigid. I had top modify the little "L" bracket so it would bolt up. The biggest issue is that the rigid mount transmits all the exhaust vibrations into the car frame... I think I've found a solution, but it's going to end up costing me a few more bucks and some fabrication.

I had the same issue until 2 days ago. I cut it off and it seems to be fine.

Do you mean you just did away with the whole thing? In my car the tip would be too low and off center from the bumper cut out without the mounting...

This is what mine looks like:

On mine it stays right where it should be, I want a 2.5 turbo back system anyway so this one doesn't mean much to me.
