So as you may be able to tell by my Avatar I have a Ducati 848. I have been looking for an exhaust for quite some time and was leaning towards either the Akrapovic or the Leo Vince slip ons.
The Akrapovic Ti sleeve/carbon cap slip on is going to run me $840ish US factor in 6-12 % duty and 12% taxes plus the exchange rate and I'm looking at 1200-1300 bucks for a slip on. The same goes for the Leo Vince Ti with carbon end caps.
The caveat is that I can get a Full Leo Vince EVO II stainless headers and ti/carbon cans for $1000 from a private sale. Slightly used but great condition. The guy is even willing to mark the value at $250 so I only have to pay taxes on that. No duty because it is a US made product (NAFTA) unlike the Akrapovic.
So here is my dilema, your input would be greatly appreciated.
