Im in the process of getting a HKS carb ti exhaust.

And since my factory one is rusting to hell and back i was thinking i could get the factory one replaced with a brancd new one.

Anybody done this?

How do i go about asking the dealer.

Like do i just walk in and say "i have a problem with my exhaust! Its rusting real bad and i was wondering if i could get a new one."

i have never had to deal with a warranty thing like rust so, help me out!

Does it have a hole from the rust? Considering you dont see the exhaust from outside or inside the car, I dont see why they would replace it unless it was malfunctioning.

Some people say they have had exhaust replaced because of rusty tip.

I think I'd have them look at it. Then if they say it needs replaced, suggest the warranty.

well then they could just say......"ahhh well it looks okay to me"...and then be done with it....

I think i should take more of a firm hand in the conversation. Like im unsatisfied with the Tip and since imstill under warranty i would like it replaced!

The idea was to get them to say it needs replaced first off. That puts you in a good position, once they have already committed.

I'm going to Cleveland. I stay over in Cinci Monday night and then the rest of the way on Tuesday. Actually I stay right down the street from the auto mall. I looked at IS300's on their lot last May, but ended up buying one in Cleveland.

Damn you're a whiney bitch. It's a car. Take care of your tip and it won't rust. If you do neutral drops and the tranny drops, should the dealer pay for a new one? No. This was your own stupidity at work. Don't try to scam the dealer into giving you a new exhaust. If the exhaust had rusted to a point that it functioned incorrectly I would say go in because that is an engineering defect, but just because a piece of chrome metal that is exposed to a road 365 days a year in variable climates begins to rust after never seeing a chrome cleaning product is no valid argument for Lexus to be responsible for the replacement of the part. I had an HKS hiper on my car for about a one and a half years. I used chrome cleaner on it once a month, no rust ever showed up.

why do you have to come in here and be like that for?

I own a lexus and after a 2 yrs of its life NOTHING SHOULD BE RUSTING period. Thats plain and simple.
i mean there is nothing more to say to that response.

Im sorry you feel that way about my idea, but thats cool.

You guys are acting like im the first to do this.

Stainless steel is supposed to be rust free.......thats why people spend the extra money on all stainless Steel products!

I'm getting confused here.

Is it stainless still shouldn't rust?

Or is it stainless steel shouldn't rust?

Please make up your mind. :(
