On 9/20 I placed an order for MM59633 Ford Focus ST Metallic Core High Flow Direct Fit Catalytic Converter from Hottexhaust. Finally received it today and I'm extremely disappointed. The welds are horrible, there is welding wire/rod all over the dp, globs of weld here and there, the bracket has a huge gap on one side, and the hangers aren't even lined up. The turn around time wasn't too bad, I had read where it took one member a month to receive theirs, but this looks terrible. I'm waiting to hear back from them. At this point I don't even want a replacement, I just want a refund. Anyone else have a similar experience? 20160930_165450.jpg 20160930_165458.jpg 20160930_165516.jpg 20160930_165526.jpg 20160930_165535.jpg 20160930_165544.jpg 20160930_165557.jpg 20160930_165608.jpg 20160930_165615.jpg

What a mess. Mine was much better than that from them. Their quality has really fallen off.

Incredible! I purchased my downpipe from them about 2 years ago and it doesn't look anything like that. Mine fit right up and everything matched. Still working great after about 40k miles. I wouldn't use that even if it were free.

got mine in last week and it looks considerably better than that. The hangers are a little off but looks like I'll have to cut them a bit anyway. The welds however, look 100% better.

I received mine last week and it is way better than that. The hangers were too long but once cutted they fit well. For 278$ canadian dollars shipped, I can't complain.
