Im sure everyone already knows this, but I got ahold of the sales manager for Bub today. They are getting a "shipment" of the black 2-1's in about 2 weeks. This order is already allocated to back orders. Next shipment is 6-8 weeks. I cant get how many are in the order..

So either from what i can come up with is: 1.) they are thriving in this economy to where they cant keep up, or 2.) Need a lesson in production management.

If anyone ordered one and changed there mind, let me know so i can take it from whomever you are getting it from..

Thanks.

i ordered mine on oct 21, 2010 and am still waiting for the damn thing.i was told by 2 different people 1 at bub and 1 at westendmotorsports.com that this pipe is one of their best sellers. WTF! a 5 months wait for this pipe. this ****ing pipe better be worth its weight in gold. they told me that it should be shipped the week of 3-14-2011. we'll see.

i just placed an order today with sharkey for this same pipe. he made no indication to me that there would be a wait for delivery. once i get a reply email from him, i'll let you guys know the turnaround time.

I contacted them on Monday and they had said that they will be shipping the week of the 21st...it better be! I'm with you redracer95,as I've been waiting since Nov.! I understand back orders but, 4-5 mths. for products is a joke! Maybe there 4 day work week needs to get pushed up to 6 days to take care of customers!

I don't blame you if you walk away from it!! Everytime I've called I got lame excuses and more time added to the ship date! I want to cancel but I'm not diggin' on any other exhaust as far as 2 into 1's. I don't know what I'm gona do if they don't ship soon. I don't want to put stock or my Fatshots back on. This should be an embarrassment to them to not be able to get these done in a timely manner!

What about the Bassani? Any thoughts? I dont like the longer 2-1 but dont they make a shorter version that is very similar to the bub?

I've seen it being discussed here but I haven't heard it yet. I didn't think it was available in black yet? I agree the long pipes are not very attractive.

Anyone get any updates on their orders? Just wondering if anything has changed.

Was thinking about getting the Bassani road rage in Black.

Finally got good news...my Bub7's should be here on Tue.!!!! From the info I gathered,the first shipment of pipes to be shipped are for long standing backorders,which it has been almost 5 mths for me! The second shipment in about 6 weeks should be for more current orders..hopefully. I was told that they do not plan to let this happen again!! Lets hope not,it wouldn't be good for their business!!

yup,she was cool. it had to suck for westend to have to deal with this for so long. I agree bub f'd up and dropped the ball on this...all the excuses they gave kept getting worse and worse. but im hoping the pipes are worth it! the si$%ty thing about it is that after looking for the bub's everywhere i ended up finding them for $515 shipped from another company but they didn't have them in stock!! so i just stuck with my original order from westend. by the way you seem to be in the loop about mwt...where and when is it??

I didnt have a prolonged wait for these, but I do believe they are worth the wait........I know it's hard to do, but try to be patient.:banghead:

I will let you know what I think of them for sure. 5 mths is excessive to wait for any part...especially exhaust!! I was at the point of cancelling the order,but no other exhaust is really appealing to me like the bub's are. With that said I'm hoping they go on smooth and sound just as good!

Well I sold my tab's so i am exhaustless.. I figured i would call westend to check to see if they may have ordered any for stock and not just back orders.. Well they did.. Said i should have it by thursday! Cant wait.. Hopefully my bracket came in..

If anyone knows of anyone else wanting one of these I think they have one more thats up for grabs..
