My mechanic and I fitted my new Topgear back boxes tonight. At some point I'll do a write-up on them. But in the meantime, guess what happened when I came to remove my 3 year old DANSK sport boxes.

This is the passenger side - the one that hadn't failed on me (or so I thought):

Is it fair to say that Dansk boxes are pretty poor quality and not worth having?

Well they're 3 years old and both boxes failed in exactly the same place. The brackets welded to the side of the boxes that hold the boxes to the car are made from a lot thinner material than the Topgear ones and they are harder to get in and out of the fitted location as they are much fatter and bigger than the Topgear ones and it's a tight squeeze between the bumper, wheel and engine when trying to get the boxes in there.

What is wrong with original Porsche items? They appear to last for at least 15 years.

They're not as good sounding and eye watering on cost.

I think the original Porsche silencers are about £1k each atm .. somewhat over the top i think .

You wouldn,t belive how many of them we used to throw away when we fitted the sports exhaust .. i could cry these days .. i really could .

Do Hayward and Scott do them?
My old 964T had an H&S silencer on it that still looked as good as new after at least 15 years on the car.

I known this is an old thread..but I thought I'd post that I puschased my 997 last year and it came with Danks boxes and cats.I believe the previous owner fitted them about 3 years ago.

My car failed an MOT due to emissions ..plus it was blowing. The flexi's were shot but to get it through its MOT we did a bit of a bodge with some paste.

Having recently read the old group buy thread and feedback...I will shortly order the TopGear valves system.

Well that would stop me ever considering Dansk. Not necessarily the weak part, but their attitude to it. Poor customer service stops sales. They need to learn

I fitted a set of Milltek silencers last week .. these don't have a flexi pipe but a ridgid tube .. they didn't line up very well and when i fitted the tail pipes they almost touched the bumper ...

This car had very worn engine mounts so in essence if they are replaced then the tailpipes will no longer fit as they would jam against the bumper ( PU )

Worn engine mounts means the engine and the exhaust sits lower .

just an observation though ... perhaps a duff set .. Dont know

Blimey this is an old post resurected , just goes to show if you dont look after your customers it will keep coming back and biting you in the ass . Villaman dont forget when ordering Topgear give 10% discount to forum members Thumb they also offer a lifetime you own the car guarrantee . Thats how to stand behind the quality of your products Thumb
