    Default A warning about Magnex!!!

    Guys, anyone thinking of buying a Magnex, think again.
    1. You might not be able to get a hold of one soon
    2. Don't expect a lifetime warranty

    Reason? Magnex have gone into receivership. Just this morning I was informed by Roadrunner that I wouldn't be getting a lifetime warranty on the exhaust that I purchased on Thursday and fitted this morning.
    Having had a bit of time to think, I am wondering if they knew this before sending me the exhaust as I never got the certificate to send off for the warranty included in the exhaust parcel.

    Not great news! They have agreed to give me a 12 month warranty themselves. So anyone thinking of buying with the plan to have full warranty, forget it.

    Not nice mate, but to be honest unless you plan on keeping the car for many, many years it should be not real problem for you.

    Was wondering why i never recieved anything back from them since sending my warranty card to them.

    Saved money getting it from Roadrunner anyway, and can't see anything going wrong with it as its the best one i have seen.

    That's what I thought. I ran a magnex on a very highly tuned Escort Cosworth for 2 years without incident. I never keep a car more than 2 years normally anyway so not too much of a problem, plus Magnex is good quality. Just might not be many about anymore.
    Just thought i'd mention it. Not gonna change it now. Can't be ars*d! LOL

    Plus I have the original exhaust which is only 6 months old.

    Mind you If they do get taken over, whoever takes them over might have to honour the lifetime warenty. ( I know that was the case when I bought a Telly and the company I bought it off went "bust" the new company honoured the garentee and repaired the telly for me free of charge).

    Well, not sure if they will be takien over as 50 staff just been let-go. Not a good sign in this present economic climate. People will have less disposable income to waste on their cars!

    That's a shame. I have a Magnex downpipe, and it's a quality piece of work.
