addition to my review of 18 June 2010:
I found ou that a lot of the loudness was actually drone coming from the pipework and the exhaust box and not coming from the exhaust exits. I wrapped the pipes and box with Cool It exhaust wrap (Thermotec) and the drone is more or less gone. Suggestion for MX5parts: include this product in the web shop! It is really good value for money.
Now I enjoy the sporty exhaust note, in stead of suffering from it. The car also feels more responsive compared to the original exhaust.
So my opinion has now been adjusted: it is not a quiet exhaust, but it is decent enough for daily use. It'll give you a race track feel any time you want, but you can cruise along the motorway and listen to the radio as well.
The exhaust is also relatively lightweight compared to other sports exhausts and the welds are really top class. High quality!
