It's looks like another Ebay mystery pipe, probably made in China, and probably not from the finest materials. It was probably sold originally with a matching mid-pipe. We'll never know the numbers,...

Personally I’ve never had to mess with mine, but if you’re convinced it needs replacement you could probably source a used one in the Parts For Sale section. If you want to get new, I’d call a guy...

FWIW, I just received my FD mats. They look great and if you upgrade a little, the weight and nubbed backing should help them stay put. I'm happy. Looking forward to showing them off. :bigthumb:
