Took the Coupe up to Longlife Battersea yesterday, they removed the 11 year old original exhaust and got a cat back system fitted. Mid-Sport sound, and the closest tailpipe to the OEM that I could find.
The sound is incredible, really something! And the service was as exceptional as I had been led to believe. Only downside was that he advised me that the Cats were as good as dead. Oh well. So now I have to consider what to do next. Sports cats or de-cat. That will depend on whether an answer to this "do they/don't they" as to Cats and the MOT is solved. I will have to do some more investigamations.
Here are some photos:
