Before I start - just to say I've bought quite a lot of parts from MX5PARTS and all exept this one item has been superb.
Bought this exhaust about a year ago, it sounded quite loud at first but did quiet down after a couple of hundred miles....unfortunately it started making a vibrating rattle from inside the exhaust box within 1000 miles (I only used the car on sunny days - so it's not had much use this year) I rang MX5PARTS last week (Sept 2007) to see about getting a replacement, but was told I'd have to take my car down to them for their mechanic to listen to the problem!!! (Fob off?)
This is not a realistic proposition as I live a good 3.5 hours drive away and work all week!! I realise this is a year after purchase but the car has done very little mileage since fitting & to be honest it really spoils the car's sound - I'm contemplating replacing it with a standard item and replacing the bumper with a standard one - a shame because the twin exit pipes look very nice dissapointing that it sounds like something is falling off the car between 1500rpm and 3000rpm
On a plus point the welding is superb (on the outside at least?) and it is an impressive looking bit of kit if not too impressive sounding!!
Shame the 5 year guarantee only applies if you can take your car directly to them to listen to it?
Having said all this - I beleive it was only early exhausts that suffered from a rattle? just my luck to have one of them!!
