    Just had a milltek cat back fitted to my s3 (3"down pipe to come) I am really surpeised how quiet it is, not that i am complaining because i wanted to keep it quiet. Will the exhaust get louder after time?

    I have done a thousand miles since having mine fitted and yes it does get a bit louder, still wouldn't say it's loud? It is a nice sound though!

    i got 3"dp sports cat and miltek non res cat back, unsure how long its been on the car, 4-5 years i reckon

    sounds mint, not loud when pootling around town or whatever, but when you give it the beans she has a nice tone, not a roar or anything really throaty, just a nice purr, i also get a few little pops and bangs when down shifting which i like :)

    It's loud enough, I like the fact it's pretty quiet. Sorry mate it's staying on the car.
    What down pipe is a good fit at a decent price

    Mines a resonated. I like it. On idle/ revving it just as quite as standard t.b.h. however get on a dual carageway or motorway and she comes alive.



    Got a video somehwere... Let me go searching>>>>

    Cheers fella.

    Ermmmm Well got it straight from Pipewerx nr Skemersdale (Near Liverpool in relation to the UK)

    They suppplied all parts inc labour @ around 6/7 hours... plus a sports cat all fitted on the ramps/off for about £700.



    The quality of the welds is second to none I.M.O.
