speak to R-Tech mate, i bought the Sprts cat from them and they fitted that and the sportscat/downpipe all as a part of the price of the cat back. not sure how much, but saved loads on the fitting.

Balance Motorsport gave me a decent discount after a chat on the phone....think Venom Motorsport had the cheapest online price at the time but Balance beat it for me....might be worth a phonecall[y]

I dont know why everyone raves about Milteks so much..granted theyre good quality but theyre hardly the best money can buy.

I've just had a custom one built with front pipe, fitted for £325 from Prospeed in Cardiff. They have an amazing rep and its not cost me £400+ once fitted. Plus should i get any problems i get in the future it goes straight back and sorted free rather than trying to contact Miltek etc..

This is mine. 4mo style and made to sound exactly how i want which is awesome btw..;)

£340 for a Miltek, then delivery, then you have to get it fitted or fit it yourself. I bet you'll have to buy new hangers. Then get it to sit right.

Dont beleive the hype.

Its just a stainless steel pipe with a name on ! Take the name off and save a lot of money.

SS pipes for exhausts are much of a muchness, save the money for something else

Got me thinking now...

I had a Miltek on my last vehicle never had any problems with that?

I have a supersprint d/p and sports cat also so want it all fitted @ once really.

May look into the Custom route?

I really would. Milteks are good bits of kit dont get me wrong but certainly nothing out of the ordinary. Its just the "Scene" exhaust to have.

£340 is a bare exhaust price too you have to remember.

Like i say, i good custom exhaust supplier will make and fit an exhaust to your exact requirements. In one sitting too!

Whats better generic or custom? lol

Fitting is pretty cheap...most garages would want circa £30 to fit it (1/2 hour labour).

When I was looking, a custom job was basically the same price as Milltek.

You do have the flexibility with a Milltek with regards to being able to change the mid-pipe (resonated vs non-res) if required due to excessive 'booming'...which may be worth considering with a little one on the way. With a custom, your stuck with the noise.

Also, if you do put your car back to standard (for selling, etc.) the Milltek will sell for a decent amount...the Custom job probably wont.

Custom is good in that you could ensure that there are no 'banging' or knocking issues and you can personalise it a bit which is cool.

Each have their advantanges and disadvantages
