    Keep an eye out on eBay. I got a 2nd hand miltek for £250 and I've seen quite a few on the bay go for even less. Other option is to just go custom.

    I'd go with the tried and tested Miltek, so many people use them and for good reason I say! The full system that came on my S3 is about 7 years old now and is still in great working condition. But the tips may be overdue a good polish...

    IIRC there are resonated and non resonated versions of the miltek system.mines a resonated which is the quieter of the 2.Mines got a sports cat aswell which helps no end.nice and quiet on tickover and really tasty when on the gas..

    Yes, you can have either resonated (with silencers, still nice and throaty) or you can have non resonated (no silencers, louder). You can also have straight through system where you have no catalytic converter, this could be awkward on an MOT but allows for much better flow. My system has a Miltek sports cat.

    EDIT:

    As above said... I had a phone call in the middle of my post and it took ages haha.

    I went and got a longlife custom system which was fabricated on the car and I love it! You also get a lifetime guarantee and you can choose your tail pipe style from there range :rock:

    Have a Miltek system myself, but if I had the choice I would probably go with a Long-life system
