    Did you calculate the cost of parts needed to bring it back to original? How much are you paying for it. Must be a low milage car.

    It has 72k km on the clock . Not sure about the exact damage caused to the front suspension. I guess to revert back to the stock exhaust system will the most expensive?

    shouldn't be a problem, other than removing and replacing again. here, the cat would be a concern

    So, did you buy it? A straight pipe is not really bad if it has a resonator.

    Way too many suspension and exhaust mods for me. I wouldn't trust that it was done correctly personally or that it improved anything
