    Unhappy Full Milltek Exhaust - NOISEY!!!

    I've done about 300 miles to try and bed my exhaust in and its not getting any quieter. I Find it great at full throttle high RPM I think its perfect! Its the Drone, Booming I get at 3k-4k rpm on the motorways which im not happy with. Have I got a duff one?

    Think is im loving the performance gain and the sound it makes just driving normally but its the drone I get!!! I feel embarrised to put my foot down on the motorway its soo bloody loud lol

    I thought Miltec were ment to be quiet?

    My Blueflame you cant hear on motorways etc untill you give it high revs
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    So it is getting noisier as it beds in then, thought it would.

    My old GSi exhaust was stupid noisey, the M3's was pretty loud to. The best sounding i reckon is the Bastuck system on Clokeys SRi T - sounds lovely

    Thats what I thought... Honest its bloody loud especially 3k-4k you can't hear anything apart from the zorst...

    Then it quietens down above 4k..... Means I have to do over 90 everywhere lol

    Yeah I did do... I will check again though. The noise is all coming from the back though not anywhere else.
