    I thought I would post the issue Ive had with Extreme in Dudley.

    Took the Evo for her first MOT under my ownership today and failed on the C02 emmisions :mad:

    She flew through for everything else no bother at all.

    After the first emmisions test I asked the tester if I could give her a razz round as the cat could of being cold as im 2 mins from test center, he said "very funny mate theres no cat on it" :wtf:

    I went down in the pit looked at the motor and he was right !!!

    So called extreme and explained they had sold me a car only 4 months ago with no cat pipe !!!

    When I went to view I was very green and eager to own an Evo as Id looked at so many over three months.

    Extreme assured me the car was totally standard and never been played with :whistling:

    So I looked over the car used my buyers guide I downloaded from another forum, then taken for a test drive by the salesman then I was allowed to drive the car all was well and money was parted with and away I went all smiles.

    There was no signs of rust underneath the car when I looked but at the time didnt look for a cat so my fault lessoned learned :(

    When I called Extreme today the salesman was very appologetic and said he will look into it , I moaned a bit and agrred he would call me back tomorrow.

    I then get another call from extreme asking me to bring car in to them !!! NO WAY was my reply and told him I will not be bringing car in and he should send me a new cat and gaskets to which he ageed and is sending out tomorrow :)

    The reason I am posting this is for any potential and current customers of Extreme UK and potential buyers of Evos.

    No matter how proffesional the place looks a company is only as good as its staff,salesmen,mechanics and other employees .

    Luckily I now have a good mechanic who knows what he doing and will be MOT'ing the car for me Monday with a Cat pipe. Unluckily my de cat I ordered yesterday has turned up LOL :razz:

    I have looked at other forums and found many thread negating this statement :)

    It may seem small but the implications are not for example my insurance would have been void if I had an accident as the car has been modded :mad:

    Not to mention when the salesman stated the car was not modified in anyway it is clearly misleading and ILLEGAL FYI the advert for the car on thier website also stated this :wtf:

    I think you did well in the end to be honest with you.

    You have a point in that they should have told you or described the car more accurately but at least they are sending you the cat and gaskets!....It could have easily gone the other way!!!

    Lesson learned I see! ;) :razz: :D :D

    As in the first post I called them and have new cat coming .
    I read and was told the same but was just posting for new owners or Extreme customers so they know that no matter how good a reputation ALWAYS check and check again as this proves that you just never know mate :)

    Defo mate :) :blush: and I have said to the guy from Extreme I appreciate the new cat even though it should of been on car in first place , they couldn't of been more appologetic El. I was more worried that my insurance would of been invalid if an accident had taken place as we all know a IX is worth a fair bit of dough all of which id of lost if the worst had happened :blush:

    As above, reason for the post was more of a beware and take care thread not a witch hunt for Extreme. Only going to be using highly reccomended folks to work on my baby in the future :)
