    As above just wondering opinions I know it's one of the things that's been asked alot of times and I have had a search myself and it seems to be 50/50 so was just wanting some fresh opinions?? I want an exhaust that's got a little something but not to loud but I want a bit more noise when I give it some but nothing crazy loved my old Remus on my Vxr I had but was a bit much all the time with the pops and bangs, so was thinking about the resonated with special tips on it?? Any pics would also be nice as I know we all love a photo of the car :)

    You won't get pops and bangs from either on an S3. The non-resonated drones more around 2k rpm, but the resonated doesn't sacrifice too much noise in return for less drone. The resonated can also drone a bit too, just not as much. Both systems have a nice deep idle and can make a fair roar when in full attack mode.

    I had resonated on mine, with Special tips

    I went for the res with special tips as I wanted to retain OEM looks and sound levels, well happy with it, a little throatier on idle and a bit noisier on WOT.

    Very happy with my Resonated TBE. Up until it snapped that is.
    To be fair Milltek did honour the warranty fuss free even though I was not the first owner.

    Seems to be Ok now and gains are noticable. Sounds is just a little fruitier to make a difference without being anyway boomy.

    I'd go BCS. My Milltek is great, but BCS are better in my eyes.
