    Panel filter and full stainless steel exhaust from cat back would be your best bet.

    I honestly dont see the point tbh mate, waste of money if you just want it to sound different, 500 notes possibly on something to sound like what, a V8, lol, spend it on more worthwhile mods mate that you see & actually say yeah that was money well spent, cause for me it would be a total waste.

    Nige is right. If you want noise then get a cheap back box. You can get a CD of a Merlin engined Spitfire ! bang that in your cd player and off ya go :-)

    Mick......what good is a new panel filter going to do him ??

    Jut get a back box and get it welded on - providing it has baffles in it, well sound decent.

    I went for a savage one on my 1.4 Golf and sounded just right - loud when you boot in but slightly more "beefier" at all other situations :D

    Get a drop in K&N too - at around 40 its a good buy as you dont have to change it each year.

    A K&N will oil up your MAF. Get a dry filter like a piper cross.

    There was a product l saw on tv once wherein it basically let you adjust the notes to your liking. Ferrari, Bugatti, works in any motor. Cant remember where , was on tv. Must not have been a massive hit.
