    That doesn't look like an exhaust to Milltek's normal standard.

    To me it seems to stick out too far and those clamps make it look like a cut 'n shut job.

    I'm sure it sounds great. Does it breath better?

    Looking at the first pic Richy, I don't think you took that picture underneath the car mate, I can see the clamps! Was it a custom exhaust or one designed for your car?

    Yup, me not trying to offend neither, just giving an honest opinion... you have payed the moneys, and at least should get a quality product to go with the car, not something powerflow conjured up with Milltek exhaust trims bolted on /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif they'd better have some good answers...

    Looks like lazy fitting to me (either that or the welding kit wasn't working on the day it was fitted). The massive clamps under the car look totally over engineered (and ugly) they are simply unacceptable.
     
  15. But what happens if you unscrew them and rotate them 180 degrees? Will you se them from behind anyway? Looking forward to hear the sound.....

    Edit:
    Find thid pic! As someone said it should be welded:

    I suspect that the clamps simply hold on the cosmetic chrome end pipes and could be taken off, then the polished end tailpipe spot weled or seam welded on if prefered...

    humm. dunno but soon as miltec get back to me then ill know if thats the way or its not..

    i mean if thats the way its suppost to be but can obviously get it done so its flush. then i will go for that to be done...

    get the clamps removed and its fitted in the bumper more so it doesnt stick out as much...

    Spot on, but for the price you pay I would expect that the standard method is a welded seam - even powerflow do this to their systems.

    The above solution is cheap, untidy and strikes me as being somewhat cack handed...

    Richy - fret not however, there will be many places who can remedy it for you if Milltek don't.

    Jonathan (911SC) I didn't say it should be acceptable to me so whats your point ? You and everyone else have agreed that it is a cack handed solution.

    My millteks the same i just assumed it adjusted the protrusion of the tailpipes e.g undo the clamps and push in to make it more flush.
