Default 3" turbo back exhaust from Kerma TDI

Has anyone ordered the 3" SS turbo back exhaust from KermaTDI and been waiting for months to get it? I ordered one on September 12 and still do not have it. I knew they were on back order and was ok with waiting but every time I contact them they tell me it will ship next week and then a month later still no exhaust system. I have bought a lot of stuff from Kerma over the years and never had a complaint. I was just wondering if anyone else has been waiting for a 3" exhaust and also wondering when it's time to call it quits and ask for a refund.

They've had your money for months?

What happened to not charging someone until you have the parts? Full price? I can see a deposit but full price is pretty shady.

I ordered mine few years ago, it came in a week later. It's probably one of of the best aftermarket exhaust systems on the market period, regardless of application.
I can't speak for you but it should be worth the wait. Call kerma-tdi and get answers shoot it's not that hard.

I had the same experience and feel the same way about the kit.

Although no performance gain versus the 2.5" ~ the audio experience is superior.

I think Kerma has changed their fabricator since then, which could mean a lot of things....

OP, stay on top of this!

I have contacted them, multiple times. Their answer is always "it will ship next week" I talked to them on Tuesday and they said the first 6 systems where going to ship to persons who have been on the list as far back as May. I was just wondering if anyone on here might be one of those persons.
