Default TRD Knock-Off exhaust on Ebay

Just thought I'd post this incase people haven't seen it. Looks exactly like the TRD muffler, just doesn't have the TRD stamped on the tip. Well, doesn't really look polished either. But it's much cheaper.

Interesting. Ive purchased a $60 intake for my tC from them and it was a decent product. I wouldnt mind trying this out for the price. Hmmm

Yeah looks like a good alternative for folks that like the TRD but don't want to spend that much.

better hurry on this one. they only have one left... i bought the other one. if it sucks or doesn't sound as good as my magnaflow set up, it was only $160 shipped. way better than the $350+ for other exhausts

Whitebread, can you post up a review when you get the exhaust? I am curious about it's fitment and sound. A vid in-car or driveby would be sweeeet!

Yeah you can easily get a new tip for a decent price.

Speaking of tips, did anyone else get the exhaust tip from the dealer, only to realize it looks nothing like the one shown on the Scion site??

What does yours look like? Mine is like the one in the gallery of the xB on Scion's site. The round angled down one.

Yeah, mine looks just like that. But I was expecting something more like the one shown on the Accessories page. That one resembles the TRD exhaust tip more. So I take it you also purchased the Exhaust tip from your dealer? Does anyone know where I can find a tip that actually resembles the TRD exhaust??

yes, i'd be more than happy to give a review. i'm not expecting the best axle back in the world due to the price, but for 160 to the door, all ss... i had to give it a go. not sure how to get a vid or pix on the site... the worst thing that will happen is i'll end up putting my magnaflow back on again and be out money. i have a spending problem!!!

Cool deal, can't wait. I want the TRD exhaust but Geez, almost 400 buks for an axle back. If the fitment and sound are not to shabby I might have to reconsider. 160 is much easier to part with.

Does it look like the knock-off exhaust has pinch bends instead of mandrel bends like the TRD? It probbaly won't make a huge difference anyway being that it's an axle back system. If it sounds nice (ie. not ricey), that should be reason enough to buy it.

No I didn't pay for an exhaust tip. The silver angled down one is on every xB. The closest thing to the TRD tip I've seen (aside from the setup I posted up top) is the tip in the accessory catalog.
