    Just got my car back from having a new exhaust fitted as original had rusted badly in the centre section. Had a cat back Jetex system fitted with twin round tails - looks really sweet and i very pleased apart from it is quite loud. Now this maybe because i was used to the original one which was silent and also the fitter said it will sound a bit 'blowy' for a short while until the insides coke up.

    Is this right?? Have i made a terrible mistake??

    I love it sounds deep and sweet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif at idle but whn giving it the beans just sounds tad too chavish!!??!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/idea.gif

    Any opinions or experiences??

    Without hearing it, I can't say for sure if it sounds too loud. Personal opinion and all that.

    But as a general rule, exhausts tend to get louder with age.

    You have any pics?

    i have a jetex CAT-back system on my A3 (twin round pipes) and its definitely not loud in the slightest (IMO) just a nice rumble /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
