I ordered this exhaust system yesterday (Monday) following extensive research into which one would best suit my needs, as like others, I had no desire to have my 2.0i Sport sound like a boy racer's pimp mobile. MX5 Parts were true to their deserved reputation and the exhaust was delivered today (Tuesday) PM. Fitting was really easy, just two bolts and 4 rubber hangers (lubricated with washing up liquid) and the job was done - took all of 30 minutes at a guess.
On initial engine start, I thought that there wasn't much difference - until I blipped the accelerator pedal and then the low booming rumble came - but not too loud that it would upset the neighbours. It is nowhere near as loud as I expected it to be (which is a good thing) and I am very pleased with the new sound especially when accelerating under load when it really sounds like a true sports car should. At cruise speeds there is a little deep rumbling boomy sound that doesn't intrude with the roof down but was a tiny bit more pronounced with the hard top raised. It will be interesting to see what it is like on a long motorway journey.
Overall, I am well pleased with both the service from MX5 Parts and with the exhaust which is an excellent choice for an excellent car.
