    Racing tubes?

    Hey

    Was thinking of buying one of the gt3 exhaust systems for my mk4 astra coupe. It comes with backbox and racing tube middle section to the cat back i think. What i was wondering is is the racing tube road legal considering it has no silentener? Just need to know before i consider buying.

    Thanks

    Its perfectly legal, I have a Remus one on my Coupe and it passed its MOT with no advisories. The only way it would fail is if you had an already loud backbox. The unsilenced centre section would then make this very loud. My Remus backbox that its coupled to is still fairly quiet.

    Iain's Coupe sounds really nice - a very low warble but entirely not in your face or annoying!

    cheers

    ive seen videos of the gt3 system and it is quite loud lol. would you get points or anything if it was too loud or just told to change it?

    i love the exhausts with the bubbles and pops when they come down the revs. along with a nice deep note but doesnt need to be too loud.
