Here's a quote from an old thread started by Hawaii3XTACY. It's one of the very few customer opinions listed here in the Hawaii Regional Forum:

Yup just came back from those guys and they hooked me up with a good deal and a QUICK install on my Magnaflow Cat-Back Exhaust. My Magnaflow got delivered yesterday and went to Vakamon today. Now the fricken car sounds SWWEEEEEEEETTTT!!!! Not to loud at cruising but sounds killer when the pedal is poundin'!!

So if you guys are lookin for this install give those guys a call. Cost me around $80 total with the tax.

Gabe

So here's my question:
I am going to get my Prokits installed on my hatch at the end of the month. Right now I am leaning towards Munkey Wurks Garage as they quoted me an install of $125.00. I also got a quote (Prokit+install+alignment) from DJ Motorsports, before I ordered my springs online, of $625.00, no joke! I have not yet heard anything back from Revolution Motorsports for an install quote. Any opinons or other recommendations would be much appreciated. Mahalo.

Just got another quote from Eurosport of $150.00. So right now my business is between Munkey Wurks and Eurosport. Anybody ever do business with these places? Any input? Must be no one in Hawaii who mods thier 3's or has any friends that mod thier cars. This is kind of pathetic.

HOORAY! :klavergreg: I finally got my Eibach Prokits installed! I love the new look!

Well, EuroSport ended up getting my business because they were the only performance shop able to schedule me for a same day appointment. Customer service was average, nothing spectacular, and pricing was competitive. I paid $150.00 and the entire install took them right under 2 hours. Because of thier business location, my wife and I were able to walk 2 blocks over to Ward Shopping Center to eat lunch and window shop. The Ala Moana Mazda dealership is also about 2 blocks over. It would've been perfect to stop by the parts department to pickup a bottle of touch-up paint, but I forgot. As for the quality of work, the ride is the same as stock probably due to the drop not being too agressive (1.5") and my white car was returned clean without any grease marks/etc on the body or wheels. To sum it all up, I would recommend Eurosport becuase it's near Ward, pricing was competitive, and service was a postive experience.

Going to get my Borla Catback from ESH next week, just waiting on shipping. I will keep everyone updated, but so far the manager was cool, professional, and he offered me very competitive pricing that I couldn't pass up.

Borla Catback installed and I love it!
Back to the subject, ESH in Waipahu, I would recommend them to anybody interested in quality work, great costumer service, and competitive pricing. Go speak to Roland. He sold the Borla to me much lower than MSRP and only made a profit mark up of 10% on the deal. As for freight (s/h), he went the fastest way (4 days) for an oversized box and I know from researching the net, that he saved me $$$ compared to buying online. :exnbpup:

That's a nice drop you got there!!! Wait about another week or so, if not already, and you'll notice your drop will be slightly LOWER....oooh nice!! Can we say "settled"?? We have some of the most horrible roads ANYWHERE so the constant bumps and crap that we go through, especially in town, will settle your car even lower. :D Nice!

Glad you enjoyed your Eurosport experience, I like them too, had something done from them when I had my Ford Focus.

Glad you also got your Borla at ESH. I used ESH in town a looong time ago, when they were near university (wait are they still there?) I didn't like them then at all..... But its been a like 10 years and its good to hear some positive reviews.
Bet you lovin your exhaust note eh??? I love the growl of a nice exhaust on our 3's, its not "farty" like hondas and it sounds OH SO AGRESSIVE under throttle.

Congrats! Hope to see ya on a future meet.
