Hey guys I'm looking into buying the MBRP pro-series catback exhaust for my St. I initially looked at cjponyparts because that's where I've bought some other things. CJPonyParts price: is $679.99 http://www.cjponyparts.com/mbrp-cat-...17/p/S4200304/ and just for ****s and grins I wanted to compare the price that of the actual manufacturer so I took a look at MBRP's price and there's is $839.99. https://mbrpautomotive.com/index.php?page=products&part=S4200304 Now, 10 or 15 bucks I could understand, but that's $160 difference. I'm just wondering, why? How can CJPP sell it that much under MBRP. I tried to see if like maybe you get any extras from MBRP if you purchase it through them but everything looked the same from what I could tell. So what do you guys think? One thing I noticed is on the MBRP site the all of their exhausts are like the same amount over what CJPP has them listed. It's more than a $100 difference. Safe to buy from CJPP and save a hundred bucks or trust the manufacturer and spend a bit more?

There is MSRP. Then there is the reseller's cost to buy product from the manufacturer.
Then there is MAP, the minimum advertised price a product can be listed for sale by an authorized dealer. (there are exceptions and loopholes to this e.g. "Add to cart to see your price," types of things)

Somewhere between the resellers cost and MAP, is margin or profit.

Anyone buying direct from the manufacturer always wil pay MSRP or very close to it, anything less, would destroy the reseller network. All you did is give the maximum amount of profit to the manufacturer, cutting out the reseller.

Buy based on your wallet. Nothing special here.
