    -40mm all round and you won't have a problem with speed bumps.

    Cheapest place for a Miltek exhaust is thorneymotorsport in Milton Keynes.

    If you contact Miltek direct, they'll recomend Thorney MS to you.

    Nope, totally illegal. You may get away with it, but i'd expect you to get stopped. One option is to carry legal plates in your boot and if you get stopped, just swap them over.

    Courtenay Sport are actually the cheapest place to buy a Milltek system

    Courtenay Sport = £1068

    Everywhere else = £1075

    Only a few quid i know but it is cheaper

    Milltek only sell their exhausts to Thorney, anyone else who sells them will have purchased them through Thorney MotorSport.

    As a distributor we supply retail, other tuners (Courtenay and VXR PC) and direct to dealers.

    Simply put, ANY Milltek for the Vauxhall, BMW or Lotus range comes through us.

    Some people chose to come direct to us and some poeple through their own chosen supplier - no harm in that and whilst we do not seek to compete with our retailers on price we would be stupif to not be competitive - this is why we tend to offer free fitting on deals etc.

    Why is the milltek so popular? Does it squeeze out more power or something?
