Decent saving over the big name exhausts, what's the sound like, raspy, bassy?

Yeah is a great saving as I'm happy with the noise. As long as lasts is worth while. I'd say its a low toned raspy noise. It sounds angry and when in higher revs its certainly more raspy than bassy

As soon as its uploaded I'll post a link to my photo bucket of a video of the car being revved on my drive. Phone recording never really does it justice but should give you an idea

Sounds nice, very raspy I would say, not too different to a milltek.
Yeah videos never give you the full idea of the sound, but that does sound fairly loud! snigger

I just put a resonator on mine last month to make it a bit quieter, had a non resonated milltek for past few years.

Thanks buddy. Yeah is a loud one which typically is most annoying at 70 down the motorway gives my ears a bashing how much does a resonator quiet it down? I may end up doing the same. I want it louder than stock but don't want to get out with earache after a long trip

Oh dear, that sounds annoying. Resonator takes the edge off a bit and makes it slightly more refined, though it's still loud compared to standard. Luckily I don't use the motorway that much. Sometimes you can find a speed where it will get quiet(er), but might be well above 70.

Sounds like that's the route for me to take next then as I live in a small village and to get anywhere it's on a motorway and my options are 65mph or about 5000rpm in 5th would be my guess can imagine that's gonna be daft speed. Dou g that in 4th would just drink more juice stress the engine out. I'm still happy with purchase and would recommend to anybody living in a city not to much motorway miles.
