I found the shop while on the f15o forum i didnt know that a place like this existed in iowa let alone 6 miles from my house they really specialize in exhaust they build and sell exhaust on the web too my 2007 ford system was made and installed by them for less than a magnaflow kit costs on ebay it is better than my friends system because it is all one piece and welded in they also did my ball joints and shocks the same day
I saw the same thing on ebay when I was looking for my exhaust. Then I thought the name seemed really familiar. Sure enough, I lived in the town where the shop is for the first 21 years of my life.

Its just a regular old muffler and brake shop that is selling systems they are bending in house on ebay.

If you wanna call em up...Mad Hatter Muffler and Brake, Cedar Falls, IA (319) 277-4323. Theres the phone number, give em a call if you're feeling leary. I ended up doing my own, but when I called and said I saw the ebay sale and was in the area, they said to just stop in and save on shipping then.

Thats just my $.02

Thanks for the info! I may give them a call...

So far they have been very helpful through email and anwsering my ?'s
From what I saw in the ad it seems like it's what I want!!

Well what I want is a full Magnaflow system but getting married and buying a house at the same time kind put a damper on droping 500 plus for an exhaust which I in her eyes don't really need. LOL So we compromised!!

I've been taking all four of my vehicles to the Mad Hatter for the last 8 years and recommend them regularly to my friends and family. They're always reliable and fast. The owner is always on site. I trust them for every and any repair needed.

Mad hatter put a brand new gm crate engine in my 2006 silverado they did a nice job my bill was exactly what they told me and included changing all of my fluids belts hoses filters etc. my engine had to be ordered they did that on monday,wed morning they got it in I left my truck with them wed night and picked it up friday afternoon I am very happy with the attention to detail every little clip and bracket is in place and this new 3year warranty engine was put in for about the same price that other shops quoted me for a rebuilt one I liked the 3 employees i had contact with they didn't act like sales people trying to get a big sale

I used Mad Hatter for the 3 years I spent at UNI as an instructor They had no problem working on my Volvo and the quality of their work was top notch. I have moved around the country every 3 or 4 years for the last 25 years a shop that actually cares is a rare find

found them online first www.MadHatterAutoservice.com Good service and repair at a good price. They even towed it in from Independence for me. Its worth the extra drive to have repairs done properly. Whats up with the new jiffy lube sign blocking the mad hatter sign?

service and expertise doesn't get any better I used to sell these guys parts when I worked for one of their suppliers after seeing what happens in other shops and this one I won't go anywhere else if i can help it I trust greg, jason, jeremy, jake, john, noe, eric and cj just like I would a heart surgeon when I was selling them parts they would never buy the cheap stuff only the best brand names they could easily double their profit but would rather do a better job

I have been going to Mad Hatter since I was 16 years old. The first owner, Harold was great. They would never steer you wrong and provided quality parts and service. Harold then sold the business and a manager named Mark took his place. Mark was equally as great as Harold. Then Mark left and a manager named John Lampe took over. SInce then the service is horrible and the parts barely last 1 year. John is a horrible manager and has driven this place into the ground. In feb 2008 I spent $400 for exhaust work . The muffler went out in 1 year and now the resonator pipe is gone. Do not go to this place they do horrible work, poor service, and they do not stand by their product.

I had these guys take a look at my car because i just did not feel comfortable with the explanation of what i needed done at another shop . My uncle suggested the Mad hatter because he had been using them for all of his repairs for a long time T he guys seem so personable and real although I did need pretty much the same things the other shop said I saved some money and they explained to me what could wait and what was important to do right away I really like this place and have been back a couple of times and have sent a few friends in to get their free oil change card

these guys do work for most of my family and quite a few of my co workers. they have certified expert mechanics and a nice friendly office lady and have never let us down. Repairs are almost always done the same day and their prices seem fair on christmas eve they stayed late and fixed my cousins car for free so he could be home for christmas I hope i never need to take our cars anywhere else

Pros: good people to know they can fix anything quickly this place is very clean

Cons: sometimes they are out of parking spots and you have to park accross the street at the paint store

BEWARE!!! SCAMER! -
They install cheap parts but charge for the expensive parts. They have had 8 Better Business Bureau complaints filed against them in the past 36 months! Will not stand by their work which at times is shody at best. Owner very rude and evasive when questioned about improperly installed parts. I will NEVER go there again
