    Ive got one of their systems as have a few others on here but heard mixed reports about their precats.

    Its not that LOUD!!! It used to be even louder

    As for the precat though - Id defo shop around - you can spend as little as £30 extra and get a good branded one which is a route I'll be taking

    Exhausts UK. I have mixed reports.

    They did a cracking job on the Astra, still very happy with the system and workmanship.

    Completely fu*ked up the fit of the replacement backbox they made for the Lotus Carlton.

    It hung too low and i made them a stainless plate to weld in to attach the £90 genuine aluminium trim onto the box they made.
    They didn't weld it in, just used it as a clamp. Then to stop it coming off tried to weld it to the stainless back box (you cant weld ali to stainless)
    Then to top it all the twin pipes were to wide and short for the trim, so it was just blowing back and coating the box with cr4p.

    I had to repair there work, thankfully it didn't cost me. But it's put me off using them again.

    Cheers anyway mate got my miltek catback @ RR so might give em a call. Thinking about it im pretty sure they do a magnex one for about £180. If anyone can recommend a decent one (but not milltek as they're way overpriced) with a link would be handy...
