Why Our Exhaust Prices are So Low!
So the most common question we hear is: - If your parts are so good, why are your prices so low?
To that DIRECT question there are several answers that all point to lower prices.
First, we do make great exhaust products. We offer the same gauge 409 stainless steel exhaust system as the well known companies offer but better-than-most 4-inch diameter, 304 SS Double walled exhaust tips (most of the big companies offer only a single wall, 3.5-inch tips). All of our bends are mandrel formed as opposed to the compression bent tubing commonly used in OE exhaust. Compression bends reduce the internal diameter of the tubing reducing flow. OUR EXHAUST SYSTEM MAINTAINS THE SAME DIAMETER AS THE REST OF THE TUBING THROUGHOUT THE CURVATURE OF THE BEND THEREBY REDUCING BACK FLOW.
Finally, and most importantly, our mufflers deliver a muscle car sound like no other. We make kits exclusively for V8 engines (with the exception of our Ford truck kits which fit both V6 and V8 engines) because we want the best muscle car sound possible. There is NO WAY to do that with a V6 (and that is why we don’t offer a V6 Legato Kit.).
So that leads back to the reason for this blog – why are we so REASONABLY PRICED?
Because we go direct to the customer.
Why should you pay for each person in a chain of distribution who each make money on you? Think about it. If you were to buy a Legato Performance system from a local auto parts store or installer, they would take 15-25% for their stocking and handling costs. That’s money out of your pocket.
But it doesn’t stop there. The retailer generally has the product shipped to them from a Wholesale Distributor (WD) – another 20-25% goes to the WD not including the cost of shipping from the manufacturer to the WD and then on to the retailer/jobber. When you add in the fact that we charge NOTHING for shipping, the cost of doing business direct could save you as much as 70-80%!
Furthermore, we keep our prices low by not having to incur additional costs that add to the price of the product. We won’t attend trade shows like SEMA and PRI simply because they are added costs you don’t need to pay. Most companies that attend these shows spend $50,000 to $150,000 to attend. The purpose of these shows is to encourage other professional retailers and WD buyers to take on their products. That just adds cost to you.The ONLY BUYER we need is you and we certainly don’t need to pass along that $150,000 cost to you!
Legato Performance saves you money delivering a high quality, great fitting – and GREAT SOUNDING exhaust system for less – and we intend to keep it that way!
