If this piece is cracked or brittle, serious water damage can occur. If you are planning to do a top installation yourself purchase any top WITH the rain rail your installation will go much smoother. If installation is to be done by a professional you can save money by using your existing rain rail if it is in good shape. The savings by not purchasing a rain rail needs to be weighed against the cost of a longer install time.
Hey Brian, Recieved my Borla Dual Muffler Sport today from Fedex, and installed it in about 30-45 minutes. An Outstanding product with absolutely no drone throughout the power band, it sounds powerful, not at all like one of the ricey "fart tubes" that can be found elsewhere online. It has perfect like OEM fitment. Great prices, and great products. Product was shipped promptly and arrived as ordered. Would buy again!
RE: RoadsterSport Stainless MX5 Miata Midpipe Part# 60-1328: I love the mid-pipe!! Not only is it beautiful, but it makes the sounds coming out of the 'race single' exhaust even better. The two go well together, and it mellows the decel drone a lot. I'm very happy with my purchase.
