X-Pipe

Hi All,

I recently purchased a used 2008 SLK 280 Edition 10 that was first titled in Hawaii. I've seen a number of posts about X-Pipes being an aftermarket upgrade to the car's exhaust system. My car has an X-Pipe setup located 3 or 4 feet ahead of the mufflers and behind what appears to be resonators. The system looks to be stock.

Question: Did the car come from the factory with the X-Pipes as part of the Edition 10 upgrade or did a previous owner alter the exhaust.

The car has excellent low end torque, acceleration and it growls nicely, semi-loud, when punched. It sounds good top up with windows closed and awesome top down.

Thanks,
Dennis
