Hey everyone, it was brought to my attention by fellow forum member (Mike C) that the Remus is a non-stainless steel unit yet priced as high as $500-$600, while some other lower priced exhaust systems such as the stromung (stainless steel unit) is $425, and the non SS is $325, with higher quality, higher priced exhausts such as Remus and Stromung, is it a disadvantage to have a non-SS muffler? Are there any serious drawbacks to owning a non SS Remus or stromung?

The only advantage of SS is durability.

so how long would the remus last? can u be a bit more specific? with a muffler like remus which claims to be built to last, what would be the difference, seems like it comes down to looks...

no, I can't get specific because durability/corrosion resistance varies with each car and location.

Seems to me that down in the land of salt water and humidity the more corrosion protection the better.

what are our stock mufflers made of? Mine is holding up just fine aside from the color change, it looks black/brownish in color.

i think this pipes been on for maybe four or five years and all i can say is it looks like its the stock pipe but no rust, no nuthing. the car is from B-more. Snow, sleet, rain, heat, all the conditions and it still looks nice. Kind of brownish Black. Tips are in Excellent condition though.


like i said before i would buy another one just because its beautiful and WELL worth the money spent on it.

Hey, isn't our OEM mufflers the same material (non-stainless steel) as the Remus?
