Does anyone have any suggestions on replacing my mufflers? My car is so loud it's embarrassing to drive and right now my car isn't charging so it's always on ice. Don't want to spend a lot because I want to go ahead and sell the car after I get the issues fixed.

It usually breaks at the collar where it attaches to the manifold. Perhaps you can get someone to weld the collar back on.

The engine sound now comes a little bit deeper and more perceptable.
See those Pictures !

My exhaust sounds bad. They put the car on the lift and showed me the box was cracked. They said they could not weld because the rattling is from inside. The dealer told me this is normal that should be a warranty but is not. In your pictures, I don't see the box like my car has.

I went to a regular muffler shop (non-franchised) and they opened the box and re-welded everything. $200 and perfect again. Dealer wanted thousands for a new one. So don't go to a franchise muffler place - try to find a family owned type place.

No, sorry, I don't have contacts with other Fisker owners, especially not such of the SE-Version . We have no community in Europe or in Germany as you have in the US.That is teh reason, that most of the european Karma owners have joint this forum.



Greetings
