DIY eBay Exhaust systems...

So I'm looking for an exhaust system for my R53 Cooper S on a budget, and I'm seeing plenty on eBay for under $400 (USD). I'm having trouble finding any information on them, like who makes them, are they legal in California where I live, etc... the only information I've found so far are videos of people revving their engines with these exhausts.

So my question is, has anybody here been brave enough to throw their $300 at eBay for one of these? Know anyone who has? Thanks!

Thanks!
Glad you said that, I often wondered why folk buy an exhaust and then film it being revved up on the drive, the noise produced is always different when underway and the engine is under load anyway.

I agree, it's not a super helpful way to showcase the exhaust...

So far I still can't find any info or reviews. I'm probably going to take a chance on one of these systems and if it's nasty I'll return it, and let everyone here know what's what. If it turns out well, then everyone can stop buying $1,300 Magnaflow systems...
