    I have a feeling its just been branded HKS, probably made by a company in another country where HKS hasnt copyrighted their name.

    I quite fancy a blueflame one.

    i fitted the one in this link to my car had to redrill the holes in the flange took me about 5 minutes to do then it fitted perfectly the cat section has a relentless badge on it fitted up to my miltek cat back perfectly also makes the turbo spool up quicker and sounds alot better i paid 170 for mine off ebay it would cost u that just for a decat pipe from blueflame i would honestly recomend it for the money aslong as u are willing to redrill the holes u could potentially save ureself about 600 quid say if u brought the miltek sports cat and downpipe

    Blueflame all the way, fitted one to an S3 and loved it. No fitment problems either, the quality couldn't have been any better
