CTS Downpipe, Does it leak?

Hey guys, curious on those that own the CTS downpipe and their experience with it.

I'm looking to jump on it, however I'm not sure I dig that it's made up of 3 pieces as opposed to two. Looks like it could lead to more leaks... Any thoughts?

Seriously? My fear is an issue my buddy is having with his golf. He's had a leaky exhaust that no shop has been able to fix for the past year or so. Tons of money on repairs and he gets no where with it.

Anything has the potential to leak, depends on your mechanic.

Hell a 1 piece downpipe can leak. If you use quality clamps it will minimize the chances of a leak. Not sure if CTS uses Vband clamps but not all Vbands are made the same.

Going with Eurojet now. Not that CTS may have been better or worse, but Euro a tad cheaper and in the end, as you guys stated, anything can leak.
