I just got my system installed 3 weeks ago from the group buy, and two days ago a bracket fell off and tore a hole in the muffler, had to drive up to a shop to get it patched, the whole time it sounded like some abomination, or ricer, it was bad...
Look, I think Brullen has some issues. The last time I posted about this I got shouted down. I think someone else on the boards had some similar problems as you. My main problem with them was their inabilty to EVER return my calls. I could never recommend them.
It's funny - the latest group buy said they were unable to offer dual tips for the 4mo. That's all I wanted a call back for last year. . .
There have been issues with some systems rattling. Others have had issues with the brackets busting apart as well. Personally I cant comment on Brullen since I dont have one of their exhaust systems on my car. I would try to get in contact with them. If you email them, make sure to keep a copy for yourself just incase something goes sour.
My brullen exhaust all of a sudden had a bracket that self destructed as well. The car made a sudden Honda like fart can noise. I brought it to my local VW shop, Dubwerks, and they replaced the bracket free of charge, so I never brought the matter up to Brullen.
I've had my bracket break and a gasket thingy fail.
Although I really like the sound/performance, I am disappointed in the craftsmenship of the equipment.
Unless you've got the time, I'd say suck it and get it fixed. :roll:
