Yeah I never actually bought them but it seems like the dealer is blowing smoke.

I mean, the parts catalog will say that they don’t fit. They’re the wrong part for a 3.0i.

Good luck with the A/C. Tracking down A/C issues is always fun.

What's funny is I called the tech over, told him to put the trims on, told him they would fit, comes back to me and tells me they didn't fit, I proceed to pick up the car yesterday and I put them on myself LOL

Compressor and water valve are bad so that's the culprit of the AC issue

Wow, great price. I would go X pipe too. My '83C10 has one with dual Magnaflow mufflers. The X5 muffler is in great shape externally. Wish it had more rust or a hole so I could upgrade.

Yeah he recommended magnaflow 2.25 for the 3.0i models which I bought and there are only a few videos on youtube that show show what it sounds like with a V8 muffler replacement, regardless should be better for the engine and also look much cleaner in the rear
