    A 3" Turbo back exhaust is never going to be quiet!

    Blueflame are reasonably price good quality UK manufactured exhausts, and I'd rather spend my money on one of these than a Milltek.

    A few of my pals with mk5 GTI's run the blueflame systems and swear by them, its a different sound to the milltek but not overly loud inside the cabin when cruising, but gives an aggressive note when revved hard

    I'm thinking about the BF as well. The issues with the Milltek DP have put me off somewhat.

    The two things I want to know about the BF are:

    1. How loud is it at motorway speed i.e does it drone?
    2. Are other tail pipes available? Not a big fan of the current BF ones.

    I have the blueflame on my stage2+ edition 30.
    Weld quality like the entire system is superb.
    My brief before purchase was a quiet-ish system that didn't offend my wife or produce any resonance on the motorway.
    I shy'd away from Milltek as my previous resonated system droned like hell on the motorway.When I spoke to Milltek they told me this should be expected after 2 years and 12,000 miles which I thought was poor.

    The blueflame does have a different note to the Milltek but does not drone at motorway speeds and I have the ITG induction kit fitted also.

    If you're in the Bristol area, your welcome to hear mine.
