    Miltek tbe res or non res ?

    As above just wondering opinions I know it's one of the things that's been asked alot of times and I have had a search myself and it seems to be 50/50 so was just wanting some fresh opinions?? I want an exhaust that's got a little something but not to loud but I want a bit more noise when I give it some but nothing crazy loved my old Remus on my Vxr I had but was a bit much all the time with the pops and bangs, so was thinking about the resonated with special tips on it?? Any pics would also be nice as I know we all love a photo of the car

    You won't get pops and bangs from either on an S3. The non-resonated drones more around 2k rpm, but the resonated doesn't sacrifice too much noise in return for less drone. The resonated can also drone a bit too, just not as much. Both systems have a nice deep idle and can make a fair roar when in full attack mode.

    I had resonated on mine, with Special tips

    Or... how about throwing another manufacturer into the mix, BCS - they have a powervalve system that may be up your street, thinking of one myself to be honest - just need to get the ££s together!

    I went for the res with special tips as I wanted to retain OEM looks and sound levels, well happy with it, a little throatier on idle and a bit noisier on WOT.

    Very happy with my Resonated TBE. Up until it snapped that is.
    To be fair Milltek did honour the warranty fuss free even though I was not the first owner.

    Seems to be Ok now and gains are noticable. Sounds is just a little fruitier to make a difference without being anyway boomy.
    Now:
    -MK2 Golf Gti 16V/VR6, Oak Green, Shrick, Intake, Decat, Kish Retrim, Lenso BSX..
    -BMW 335d Xdrive, Estoril Blue, fully loaded.

    Before:
    S3 (8P), Ibis, DSG, Milltek, SHARK

    BMW 320d M Sport
    S3 (8P), Sprint, REVO, H&R Springs, BBS CHs,

    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - REVO Stage1, Red.
    Golf MK5 GTi 20TFSI - Std, Shadow Blue
    Civic Type `R`
    Golf MK4 GTi 18T - 200bhp, MTM ECU, Forge DV
    Golf MK3 VR6 - Cat Back
    Corrado VR6 - JAMEX

    I'd go BCS. My Milltek is great, but BCS are better in my eyes.
