Below is the Fabspeed General Warranty, which goes into effect should there not be a specific product warranty included with your purchase.
A performance car is only as strong as its weakest link. Therefore, it is vital that you maintain your vehicle to factory specifications. By installing or using the purchased product, the Consumer accepts this warranty and any specific Manufacturer warranties enclosed. This warranty coverage is superceded by any warranty policy the product contains stating otherwise.
The Manufacturer’s full warranty applies to all products sold. By installing or using the purchased product, the Consumer accepts this warranty and any specific Manufacturer warranties enclosed. Fabspeed warrants our products to the original retail purchaser (Consumer) against defects for the life of the product. This is an exception to the use of Sport Catalytic converters, which only hold a 2 year warranty and are covered for street use only. Aftermarket catalytic converters are not warrantied under race conditions. Fabspeed will not warranty any catalytic converter that is used with leaded race fuel or any type of fuel additive. Lead and certain fuel additives will damage any catalytic converter whether it is stock or aftermarket and Fabspeed will not warranty nor be responsible for any costs incurred for repairing or replacing the catalytic converters used in racing or motorsports applications. Fabspeed will evaluate any failed catalytic converter(s) and make a final decision on how and why the catalytic converters failed. If leaded race gas or fuel additives were used then replacement of cats will be charged to customer. Exhaust systems used in Speed/Competition/Road Racing and Off Road use have a propensity to fail over time. Cars subjected to these extremes require extra maintenance and caution, and Fabspeed is not liable for any catalytic converter failures under these circumstances.
Upon verification of warranty coverage, Fabspeed will, at its sole option, repair or replace the defective product without charge. This is the only remedy the Consumer has for any loss or damage, however arising, due to nonconformity in or defect of the product. This warranty does not cover consequential damage, loss of time or revenues, inconvenience, loss of use of vehicle, shipping, damage to the vehicle or components, or other incidental or indirect damage.
Use of product in Motorsports or Racing conditions is grounds for warranty denial. Motorsports and Racing is an inherently abusive operational condition, and it is impossible to warranty for this type of usage. All warranties are void if the product was not installed by a certified auto mechanic, improperly serviced, modified, or used in a way not intended by the Manufacturer. The Consumer is responsible for ensuring that the product is installed in a safe and proper manner, and should cease usage of the product immediately if an unsafe or improper condition is noted. If an unsafe or improper condition is noted, the Consumer should then immediately contact the facility where the product was installed or Fabspeed.

The truth about your vehicle's Manufacturer Warranty:
We often get asked the question, "If I fit a Fabspeed Motorsport exhaust to my car, will it invalidate my manufacturer's warranty?"
According to the law, the answer is an emphatic "No". However, many people including vehicle suppliers themselves, do not know this and supply the wrong information.
Here are the facts:
In October of 2003, European Union legislation affecting the motor trade came into force. Its full title is 'Block Exemption Regulations 1400/2002' (in short 'BER'). This legislation changes the way cars may be serviced and repaired, and gives motorists a lot more freedom in their decision about who should look after their cars.
The BER covers areas such as who can service vehicles other than agents appointed by manufacturers and, more specifically to customers who are considering a Fabspeed Motorsports exhaust, parts that can be fitted to a vehicle. Below we draw upon in particular the issues that concern fitting replacement parts to a vehicle that are not the manufacturer's original equipment.
An interesting point is that if the vehicle manufacturer itself offers spare parts of differing quality (e.g. an "economy" or "premium line"), he cannot prohibit its contractual partners (i.e. dealers and authorized repairers) from buying spare parts of the same quality from the independent market.
The BER also covers service and maintenance during the warranty period and prohibits vehicle manufacturers' warranties from including conditions requiring that all parts used must be the VA's "original spare parts".
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION DECLARED THAT SUCH CLAUSES IN A WARRANTY DOCUMENT WOULD REPRESENT "AN UNJUSTIFIED RESTRICTION FOR THE CONSUMER".
