Update : so the dealership are scrambling to put together the deal we agreed on previously now that they have actually sat down with the numbers but are going to try to get it sorted by Monday so I can sign the docs on Tuesday (they better not mess me about now and tell me that they cant offer me the price the told me verbally previously...) Car should arrive physically at the dealership for set-up, valeting etc. Got my new reg number yesterday so ordered my new plates and have been told to expect a call from the "Handover Specialist" today...whatever that means. They are still telling me next Thursday before ill actually be sitting in it though... :(

Yeh agreed everything with the dealer verbally on the phone...hope that doesn't come back to bite me.

What exhaust did you get? Cat back system? Cost?

It could very well bite you in the bum, should of asked for it in writing. But hey let's think positive :)

And I went for the cobra cat back non resonated :) first system for the MK7 ST that's non resonated :) by cobra lol

Price fitted was £445.00

Got me totally worried now after the finance guy said he was struggling to get to the numbers but said he should be able to sort it with a bit of magic. After 3 months of waiting I will be fuming if he calls and says he cant do it!!!!

Did you buy the exhaust online then take it to get fitted or buy it from the guys that fitted it for you? How long did it take them? Cant wait to hear what it sounds like!!

With the wait you've had I would hit the roof if they back heal

My friend had his mk7 st exhausted resonated developed there and mentioned I should get mine done but non resonated so gave them a call :).

They are a cobra specialist in Sheffield 10mins from where I live so popped in bought it waited for it to get made then and had it fitted from them :)

Just keep your fingers crossed for me!!!

Thats cool!! Im thinking of going for a powerflow non

res cat back as there is a powerflow dealer close to me. Though some people complain you get a "drone" at certain rpm/speeds with a non res system? Any comment?

I will :)

Plenty of drone :) I love drone haha it's the 10 year old still inside me :).

But at 30-50 cruising no drone at all sounds normal its if your doing motorway cruising or flooring it everywhere (don't recommend ;) )

hahaha!! Bet she loved that!! I know the missus will help me take pics and videos when I need her too but her boredom threshold is very low and eventually that look of "Do you really need to do all this to your car? why would you want to stand out" is written all over her face. I just pretend she loves it though!!

Yeh true!! Thanks!! Its funny how ive waited patiently for 12 weeks and now i just have zero patience, especially when on autotrader i could just drive to another dealership and have a 13 plate one tomorrow!! I just have a bad feeling that im not past the worst of it but tomorrow will tell. Even hovered and washed the mrs' KA to take my mind off it. Just finished now as it got dark. P.s bought the maguiers tyre shine from halfrauds for £9.99 and its AWESOME if you like that look and you only have to use a small amount on a sponge too!!

Google maps says your just under 2 hours from me, shame there arent any impromtu meets happening!! Maybe we should organise a fiesta meet...never been to a meet yet...would be well up for that!!

Well due to time restrictions it got a hoover, power wash, snow foam, buff and tyre shine but not a power wax or clay bar or anything too exciting. The wife will still be impressed tomorrow when she gets in it for work and it will make me look good to her work colleges.

Might set up a meet thread and see who's interested...

*New Thread Created - Lets see if there are any responses or it just dies a horrible death*

Give up looking after the GF car within hours it's kicked scuffed make up marks! Disheartening so I gave up in the end!

And doubt anything will come of it on this forum every time a meet is set up everyone backs out hmm but hey worth a shout
