    Has anybody ever used lONG LIFE or EMP PERFORMANCE if so are they any gd, or if not anyone no of any places in the south East that are well rated.

    ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED

    I haven't got one on the A3 but I used to have one on my 106 (hey I was 17, give me a break) which was done by Longlife in Plymouth. They did a really good job and were happy for me to sit around and watch them fabricate it. Wasn't overly expensive either.

    If your getting the 3" downpipe, sports cat and cat back system then i would say Pipewerx, you only get it done once so might aswell do a proper job of it, if your going cat back only then MIJ would be a good option

    i have a longlife made in plymouth also. it is utter rubbish! bad fit, hangs low, hangs to one side and now blows. the guy who did it was really rude too. i think i was unlucky but i would never go there again. i took it back and because i had clipped a speedbump they said it had been damaged so the lifetime warranty no longer counted.
    places like longlife are a franchise so one can be totally different to another....

    Wow... shocked by the difference we received in service and quality! :O

    I had mine done about 5/6 years ago so maybe different folks running it now or they just stopped caring?!
