    Milltek stick out

    Hello, ma car is in the garage back home just now gettin the CS4 stuff fitted, I phoned the garage today to check up on progress and he said the exhaust sits flush with the end of the bumper, its a full milltek zorst, non resonated turbo back. I thought it would stick out enough to c the milltek sport lettering, has anyone else got this zorst and is it the same

    When they get hot they grow by about 1".

    assuming u mean "weird"

    not exactly - metal expands/contracts due to heat etc therefore what you're experiencing is inevitable and perfectly normal - all exhausts do it

    Mine sticks out anyway so you can see the letters, but when I cane the nuts off of it, you could trip over it it comes out that much

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
