bought this for my 5 with the 475mm cat as i had heard from a few people that it was possible to fit this and for 150 quid compared to a larini at 365 quid i thought it was worth a bash. Cut out 50mm from the middle pipe and had i stainless welded down a local engineering firm for 10 quid. the template for the cut out was spot on so i cut that out using a stanley knife! I didnt fancy getting under the car is this weather so i took it down to a local exhaust garage and they fitted it on for me for 20 quid. they had to put a small jubilee clip (acting as a stopper) between the rubber hanger and hanger under the car on the drivers side to stop that tailpipe hitting against the heat shield underneath and one of the middle hangers doesnt quite line up so it wasnt used but is held in place very securely by the 3 hangers on the rear section.
im amazed how easy it was to get it adapted and fitted. looks and sounds amazing. like a few people have said it was very loud at first but after about 150 miles it does get quieter but still sounds like a beast!!
love it, cant recommend it enough, its still a bargain at 225 quid.
if you have the 475mm cat and need any help, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good job Jochen, and the mx5parts mats are also top quality for the price that they are being sold at. delivery is always next day. cant fault this company.
