Catback Exhaust from China

Ok I appreciate that noone probably has this specific exact one.
But I've been speaking to a manufacturer on alibaba with a view of getting a couple of these made up and shipped. Looks like it will cost around 200 each, shipped to the uk. maybe less if i can haggle.

https://grwa.en.alibaba.com/product/60314944710-221151672/Performance_Catback_Exhaust_System_for_Porsche_986 _Boxster_2_5L_2_7L_3_2L_97_04.html?spm=a2700.84433 08.0.0.600e3e5fqSNfG9



Thoughts on this?
They look similar to the ones I have seen going for 350+ over here, and presumably they are chinese made too.

thanks in advance

They are all the same, just rebranded. Here in the US they can be found on ebay for around $200. They can also be found for up to $1200. I had one branded Circuit Works, the one you linked looks exactly the same.

yeah, here in the UK, i'm struggling to find anyone thats selling them at all , let alone that sort of price. they seem to be rebranded and sold for about 350 from 'reputable' porsche specialists.

I think you would be better off just doing the internal exhaust mod. I have had the catback muffler on my car. The internal mod sounds so much better, with no drone. To top it off it's way cheaper.

yeah, i'm going to go down that route to be honest. although, it would work out for me to be about the same cost. 150 delivered from china, and about 100 to fit it. but even still. the drone potential worries me.
performance air filter, desnorkal and an exhaust mod, should do me good.
