well both of my flexpipes are near mint at the moment, even a little shiny... gotta love a southern car
they'll probably both rust out by the end of winter here
well i guess time will tell which way i go when it comes time

|Castor Troy||i put a GS downpipe on my dad's 9-5. it's definitely a beautiful piece.|

i paired the DP with the BSR catback and it sounds great. very mellow and deep and i was pleasantly surprised how loud the turbo sounds both inside and outside of the car. not sure of the power gains of the V1/V2... i have only been commuting with snow tires but i did get a chance to drive on the highway and the car feels and pulls so much smoother and i have seen a slight increase in combined miles per gallon. i need to clean my air filter though. it's nasty. once spring comes i plan to do a software update as well.
back to the OP- i'd consider the version 2 over 1 for above reason of replacing stock flex pipe. face it, it's going to rust off anyways. what kind of shape is the rest of your exhaust in?

I think version 2 is worth it if only because the stock flex pipe rusts out so easily. Plus you get whatever extra performance it might bring.
By the way, the DP really is as good as everyone says - the welds alone are incredible.

nick if you're reading mentioning or renaming it to downpipe+midpipe, might alleviate future confusion
does the addition of the midpipe make much difference in performance over keeping the stock 2.5" pipe after the dp?

|Castor Troy||v1 is downpipe, v2 is downpipe + midpipe|

GS downpipes v1 vs v2
what is the difference between the versions?
i can't seem to find anything stating the difference between the two.
