    I think its straight forward really, its a case of having a dual back box made and simple bolt on.
    Think there is a few on here who have had theirs done.

    I took my standard crappy exhaust off and put this Milltek on my tdi.

    It went from this.

    To this.

    It was very quiet but it was on a diesel.
    Would save you some money getting a custom rear section made up but just be careful where you go,make sure they are recommended as some firms are crap.

    Mate, have you checked out Powerflow? I've got a system on my other car (ST24) and you can make it sound as loud or quiet as you want it to during the fitting process. I ended up with a cat back, two rear silencers jobbie (320 IIRC) but on a V6 its made it sound like a burbling V8!! Lovely Jubbly!!
    After having had it nearly seven years, its the only thing that's stopping me from parting with it!!!

    Oh and if you get it checked annually you maintain its lifetime warranty too.

    It's the Votex kit, quite similar to the GmbH kit i believe?

    Dont know about the diesel sound change though. You'd have to check with the Powerflow lads - sorry.

    did me 2 4" tail piped dual back boxes for just under 300,would recommend them to anyone.will get pics for ya once ive sorted some decent ones out.

    p.s the back of my car was exactly the same as yours prior to the back boxes going on but mine already had an exhaust on either side but just couldnt see em.

    NikNak got in there before me, Wish my Mrs rear look like that.
    Love the colour.

    I had a powerflow Mid>back for around 340 and I gotta admit, its bloody does my head in sometimes, can be quite loud at times BuT still glad I got it.Sounds nice aswell...
    ...sitting at 80mph is drowning though!

    Thanks for the replies on the Wife's rear end chaps, looks better in the flesh!!

    What cat back set up did you have on your Powerflow mate, as I've got one on my ST24 and it sounds effin burrbly gorgeous, or maybe it is because it's from a V6 lump?

    The V6 lump always sound well with a filter and exhaust. Lovely Burble!

    I just had my center box removed and had a pipe all the way from where its joins up front (not removing Cat) and straight through to the back with the 2 boxes.

    No wonder its loud then!! I did this to a Vectra I had a few cars ago, bought a Supersprint exhaust and it came with a straight through pipe for a mid-section! It was noisy to say the least but sounded good, even with only a 1.8 lump under the hood!

    I did wonder if that what it was but my mate has a same set up but with Miltek and it sounds alot less noisy than mine. I know its because a Miltek and like we say, you get what you pay for but I guess its because its powerflow!!

    ...I reckon they didnt put the right rear boxes on for the sound I told them I wanted.
    Its not bad but its one of them when you start thinking about it, it seems to get louder...
