Damaged exhaust from factory?
 
While crawling under my car putting on skid plates, I noticed a pretty serious kink in my passenger side exhaust.

1: Does anyone else have this?
2: Anyone think this will affect anything? Logic tells me a restricted exhaust will hurt performance.

You better get a Corsa or a Borla on there right away! :)

+1 to the aftermarket exhaust.

The crimps are intentional and on all WK2 Hemi's to change the resonance so both pipes don't harmonize in sync and drone like the Mormon Tabernackle Choir (no offense intended). Related thread below.

Based on the pics, I'd also have to say that it looks intentional. You can clearly see that they used an evenly shaped tool to create that dent.
