QD Exhaust lasted less than a year!

Ok, so I can't send it back under warranty as I had it ceramic coated, but I do think this is shocking and others should at least be aware...

That is bad. I have a black QD exhaust on my Rivale and the black coating is peeling off all over. Unable to make a warranty claim as the warranty is voided once the screws holding the db killers have been removed and this was done by my supplying dealer who is no longer in business. I'm looking at getting mine ceramic coated at the end of the season. Can I ask where you got yours done?

That will do it, but you`ll usually feel noticeable vibration if it is.

Similar problem, but thankfully the supplier covered the cost of the re-coating.
Warranty refused because a db killer had been removed.
Why sell a system where the db's are detachable and then refuse the warranty, not good

Sorry for the late reply... Been trying to get things sorted out!

I have used Camcoat (near Warrington) three times now, every time with excellent results... The process they use certainly doesnt 'flake' or wear off, in my experience it is VERY durable! Camcoat Performance Coatings

In fact my original MV exhaust just arrived back from them today...

Back on the original topic... Design Corse contacted me after I posted this thread, they were as shocked as I was and have been excellent in helping me resolve my issue with the QD... Hopefully I'll be receiving a replacement very soon!
