    yeh that sounds brutal. My car just sounds like a 90's boy racer Corsa with a fat exhaust. I need a nice rasp like the links i posted.

    duplicate post from my members gallery so as to offer feedback on exhausts......it is a Longlife 2.5" full stainless system (from downpipe back) with sport cat

    OK then video time

    again please forgive poor audio & my cabin's rattles

    In the first video I tried to let it run up the rev's in each gear so as you can hear how the sound builds & drops as you go up the gears. I then tried to capture the burbles as you slow down & down change but it is difficult to hear on headphones. I also then tried to capture how it sounds when you have accelerated in 2nd gear, then let off the fast pedal & let the engine slow the revs down

    unfortunately the audio doesn't capture the way the sound travels in the cabin; from exhaust at the rear until around 3.5-4K revs & then moves to the front as the BMC / engine sounds take control

    https://youtu.be/ypoqtPkLXks

    In the 2nd video I wanted to try to show you how when accelerating normally & at usual cruising speeds the exhaust gives a nice grunty build up in sound, but not overly loud, & then quietens right back down. FYI just before I hit the bumpy dropped section of road I am already in 5th gear travelling around 35mph ish & you can barely hear the exhaust

    sorry there are no pics yet, it was a very busy weekend & I really need to get the autosol on the exhaust before taking any lol

    Car: G60
    Exhaust: Mk3 golf Stainless steel Jetex Back box clamped to original/OEM tail pipe then fixed to car via vertical steel hanger bolted through spare tire well...

    Opinion: Pay better attention to cars when you buy them! (Sorry couldn't resist)
    TBH though, it actually sounds pretty good... just looks a mess and it has messed up and melted the bumper where it doesn't hang correctly!

    Had a bit of a read through as I need a new exhaust, am I right in my assumption that the Jetex is as close to a stock/standard system you can currently get?
