I know i cant really do much to my car to make it any faster, but is the an exhuast i can get that will make it sound more powerful, i dont want the exhuast to stick out or i dont want to have to cut any whole out, i have a mk4 1.4 16v normal bumpers, does any body know where i can get one and what price thanks for the help again?

I'm sure I've seen an exhaust which looks very similar to the standard one. It was called discreet but I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it[:|]

Try Jetex, I'm pretty sure that they do an exhaust which pokes out below the bumper (they do one like that for the Bora anyway) and they fit better than Milltek. You don't need to change the bumper to fit the 4 Motion style tail pipes, if you do go the other route, only the rear valance which is about ?40 from the stealers.?

Hey mate,

I'v got a 1.6 16V, and no my exhaust hasnt REALLY added power to my ride, but has a nice deep tone to it, which is how i chose for it to sound, rather than a loud jap style.

I got mine done at my cousin's place Torque Exhausts (www.torque-exhausts.com), who do custom stainless steel exhaust systems. Mine was done from the cat back, and i chose my tips (Twin 2.5" to the left). They made a very small cut out in the original valance, which isnt noticeable at all. You could chuck on an anniversary back valance which has a cut out already, but i wanted to keep it as cheap as posssible too [:p]

Check them out if you want...we East London by the way [Y]

Switch....

Hi,

Take a look at Blueflame - I did mine and there is a noticeable power gain by doing the full system - I had cat etc.

Check out my previous threads - And no, i don't work for them.

I've had my car for two years and it has made it like a new car and a real joy to drive now.

Also no disrespect to anyone but get the 4mo rear valance - for the sake of ?40 or so your car will look much better rather. More OEM.

Hi, i've only just joined but came across your question. There is only one place to go... MIJ performance (www.mijperformance.com) They fitted a bespoke exhaust to my last car and it was fantastic. They are unbelievably reasonable to; I just got a quote for a full system for my gti 1.8t and it came in at under ?250! That's including VAT and fitted!!! Seriously, give them a try, and no, i don't work for them! It'll mean a trip to Walsaw (birmingham) but you won't regret it :) Their systems also offer a lifetime guarentee

Found this Website.... Im trying to get hold off the rear valence which is the very bottom left of this page clicky

And i Found this Exhaust on ebay.... Cheap I know..... but i only really want it for the look with the bumper... Has anyone had any experiences with these exhausts.... there feedback is weird...some say awesome....top quality...and some say build quality crap....so was just seeing whether any of you guys had dealt with them...

Look forward to your replies. :D
