    Remus and Milltek exhausts....trade price?

    Right, does anyone know if the VXR systems made my Remus and Milltek are available at trade price from Vauxhall parts or as they're optional extras its just the full price and thats it?

    Obviously I'll ring my local parts place tomorrow but was just curious if anyone knows...

    I'm not sure if it's too loud. I never thought I'd hear myself say that lol.

    End of the day I'll take what ever's going cheapest...but so far my begging to various people / companies has fallen on deaf ears. I'm such a tight sod

    too many people trying that game when it comes to VXR's mate.

    The Remus is a much better system regards sound and looks. See if Tony at the VXPC will offer a discount at the end of year party?

    I don't expect anything for free, just a deal. I guess its different in the ICE industry, I didn't even have to ask

    Will definitely be speaking to VXRPC though as I need a remap too so hopefully there'll be some room for haggling.

    Remus is cheaper then the Milltek both are nice exhausts
    the Milltek is hand made
    the Remus is made by a robot so they are all the same

    With miltek you're paying for a fair amount of needless over engineering TBH - like why do they bother with those fancy turned hanger retainers, and those welded on part number plates.

    plus the prices can be kept needlessly high with their current sole distributor

    Remus everyday. Dont forget it is only noisey due to increased boost - which at Stage II you would be running. It doesn't have to be noisey, and could always have a silencer put in and still be cheaper than the milltek.

    VXRPC is the sole distributer of the Remus, the others get it from them so it fixes the price. I would imagine if you phoned in advance Tony might do you a deal on it at the xmas doo, but they aren't doing fitting !
