TRD exhaust...

Should I buy TRD exhaust online for about $500 and take to someone install it or should I just buy it at dealer and let them install it, it would be about $600.

You can easily install it yourself but if your gonna have someone do it take it to toyota. Most places charge about 70-80 to put it on anyway so that extra 20 bucks just makes sure your warranty wond be affected.

...however, if you don't want warranty issues, let Toyota install it - it won't be that expensive

Oh man, last friday i went to the dealer and ask for the price for the TRD exhaust extended and they said $643, and i said, " are you crazy!, i can buy that online for just $490 ", and they could not believe me, i just asked for a computer with internet and show them they are wrong.

They said i could buy it online and take it to them, and they will install it for $60.

The Kazuma is a racing exhaust and is illegal because it's sooo loud. Definitely not to be used for daily driving, although a lot of people do. You are likely to get a ticket because of how loud it is. I would not advise you to get it for daily driving.
