I've had this exhaust for a few months now. I didn't want to write a reply too early as i wanted to let the exhaust 'run in' for a while. Firstly it was easy enough to fit. It's an idea to have a touch-up pen because when you cut the hole out of the bumper you're left with the white unpainted colour of the bumper where the hole is. When i had the exhaust fitted the passenger side was about 3/4" lower than the driver side. It wasn't overly noticeable but i'm sure , like me, you want it to be just right! I fixed that by getting a shorter exhaust rubber hanger and putting it on the pass side. It lifted that side up and now sits perfectly.
Now a word of WARNING...the exhaust is loud (which sounds great when you're giving it some) but is really 'boomy' on part throttle. It can be really annoying and could well spoil your enjoyment of driving the car. I don't drive my car every day and when i do drive it, i drive it how it's meant to be driven. The exhaust really sounds good when you're up the rev range. It's still very loud though and i can't really hear the induction note from my blitz induction kit. To sum it up, it's great value for the money and it certainly looks like a quality item but, and it's a big but, it's probably too loud and boomy for most people. It looks superb on the car and its looks make up for the lack of a quality exhaust note that you'd expect from the higher priced exhausts.
