Thanks for them links!

This one looks good-

But I am a bit worried that it says not tested for road noise level

Yes, its a shame about that, i wonder if its just to "cover their backs" or if its really loud, you might need to get one with a middle silencer to get a quiet one  

 

It should still pass a UK MOT though

 

Ive got a "straight through" system (with a single "straight through" muffler), with it having a turbo it really cuts the noise down, an NA (naturally asperated/ non turbo) needs a bit more silencing unfortunately

I don't know too much on cars, but comparing the 105£ system and the original one I posted, the 105 one looks alot louder because it doesn't have a silencer box thing...that's the complicated terminology!

 

The Miltek one is too expensive for me, I like the cobra box but that is just a box for the same price as the box and system which I think would be a bit better?

 

What do you think?

I think you get what you pay for (more or less) if you want to keep it fairly quiet you could get the cobra one, its stainless steel and you have a choice of 4 ends, you could always replace the middle bit in the future

^^ Sounds good - not too loud/ OTT, but a bit throatier, deeper, like it had a bigger engine ^^  

 

nice one
