      Also, are the lights the same in the wagon as the sedan? Thanks.

      How much is it going to set me back for...

      Alright guys, I put the new cat and downpipe on and it seems the leak is gone, but I had a couple of questions. Is it possible that all the condensation that had formed in the cat-back or some kind...

      Have used TT before, and they're great, but I really don't want to spend too much considering I paid $300 a few years ago and now it's toast again. Exhaust shop I usually use quoted $250 just to...

      So, I got it up on stands and turned it on, it became quite obvious where the leak was coming from- the flex joint on the side going up to the downpipe has just detached all the way around. Kind of...
