    Exhaust

    Need some advice about a replacement exhaust lads.. my factory fit is just about on its knees, and need some input on the best ones to buy, my down pipe is an all in one, (suprisingly), and i dont want anything that will attract attention (loud).

    she`s an 03 turbo cabrio.

    Cheers..

    What do you want? full exhaust, a cat back or just a back box?

    I have a blue flame cat back and it sounds just the way I want it. Nearly as quiet as standard on tick over, but it can be heard when giving it some.

    the down pipe should be the 2 part one on that year
    how much money do you want to spend ?
    Milltek exhaust at around £300 to £360 but they do sound nice

    give LMF or TMS a call they will do a good deal on the system
    do you want to go for a sports Cat an pre Cat pipe
    my exhaust sounds fine i think

    if you just want a cat back exhaust blue flame cat back is good for the money an just use a LMF pre an sports Cat

    on my Milltek i had a bit brake on monday called them up an tuesday morning i had a new part on my door step at 9am

    As Danny said, i'd get a sports cat from LMF + pre cat from there, or exhaustsuk do one for less.

    Then you a few options for the CAT back, Miltek, Blueflame or Scorpion systems are good as well.

    keep your eye out on ebay for one, i managed ot buy a brand new cat back blueflame exhaust system off ebay for £65 delivered, it was for a hatch and not a coupe so i had to weld a 6" extension peice on the backbox join bit for it to be long enough for the coupe but for the price i paid for brand new you cant complain, its sounds nice and quiet on tickover and driving slow and when on boost it gives off a not loud but nice noise
