Heat guard

FMF sells a heatshield for the pipe. It is not as large as the stock one but it works and not too spendy. Plus it has the FMF logo on it.

Its a scam.

I saw this almost identical ad on Autotrader for a Mercedes SL. Same KIA story, same, eBay BS. I tried to go look at the vehicle and that is when they disappear because there is no vehicle. Beware!

Be careful of lace up boots. They can come untied without you knowing and get caught on the pegs. Then guess what happens when you stop and go to put a foot down? Don't ask me how I know. :becca
