Happy Milltek 1M

Finally bitten the bullet and had primary cat back Milltek exhaust fitted. Exhaust is only slightly louder than stock, nicely bassy at low revs, nice howl at higher revs. Main thing I changed the exhaust for.. no drone. Used to suffer nasty in cabin drone at 2300-2800 revs, now long journeys are a real pleasure instead of having to keep the revs above or below the drone band. Thanks to AMD Essex, nice job. I'll get some in tunnel sound clips, will prob be a few weeks when am back in the UK.

Look forward to hearing the exhaust! I was thinking the same thing today, that drone really does get annoying unless I turn up the music, or slow down/speed up, as your say.

I have the same setup. I must agree that is only a bit louder than stock but after breaking in it really widens up. Very bassy like you say and no drone issues due to the big resonator who's infront of the rearmuffler. Overall i'm also very satisfied with the sound it produces.
A few amateur soundclips of mine :

Hi Jamie, it was about 1480 fitted. They also do a secondary catback for 1215 fitted but i thought might as well go the whole hog.
