Definately a game changer imho. The pipes on my 500 are ok and not due for a replacement and more importantly .... original. Wonder what prices are on the continent.

There is an Italian site that sells the 4 into 4 system - they occasionally have discount offers.
With a UK seller returns or damage is much easier to resolve imho.

Do they have them available straight away, or are they made to order?

As I have no brackets it was a lot cheaper than buying a complete system from DS.
I will not be fitting the system until I have the wheels in place.
I will report how easily it fits in the spring.

Update:- I've been told to expect delivery on Thursday

I’m going to order a set next month.
Think I’ll tell the missus it’s a very reasonable £250, Just won’t tell her I need 4.

Firstly thanks to NJ for finding these recently listed  systems by Delkevic

Early observations are they are well packaged with all the fittings - so far so good.
The finish looks good too early to comment on the quality of the chrome - time will tell.
