This rear silencer is a work of art, the care taken in the welding and its highly polished finish oozes quality. Remember to order some rubber hangers and a gasket to go with it. Local garage fitted it cheaply, thought I had to buy the mid-section as well, as the original had been on 8 years and was rusted to the old mid-section (factor that into your cost).
No bolt alignment problems, though garage did remove cross struts under the car to get the exhaust mid section in. This is the exhaust the Mk 2.5 sport should have come with from new. With the new mid section attached to it from MX5 parts, there appears to be more mid-range torque making the car livlier from the word go. Sound is much better, like a sports car but not so over the top that it drives you nuts on the motorway! It could be my imagination, but car appears to stay cooler, either the extra density of the stainless steel or perhaps more of the gas/heat going out the back of the car (it certainly 'clicks' as the metal cools down after a good drive!)
Buy it with the mid-section and get more fun out of your MX5, you won't regret it!
