I recently ordered one of these and had it fitted at the local garage. I recommend getting the gasket (MX5Parts part No. SI2083) and two new fixing nuts (the nuts had to come from the Mazda dealer as I haven't see them on MX5parts yet). The local garage was most impressed by the quality of the exhaust (as was I), but unfortunately the fixing holes (now slots) saga continues. They are now the correct diameter for the M10 studs welded to the centre section, but the slots do not extend far enough to the outside edge of the flange to mate up correctly with the studs - they still need to have a couple of mm filing away at both the outer ends of the slots to make them fit! I have seen comments about these fixing holes many times and thought by now they would have been corrected....but they are still wrong!!
Apart from that, the exhaust has a much better sound than the original (deeper growl) so overall it's a good upgrade.
