I've had the system on a few weeks now so had time for it to bed in and get over the "honeymoon" period. Overall very happy, but let's get the bad bits over. Like others, I found that the tailpipe doesn't match the bumper cut out correctly - may not seem a big issue but it looks wrong from square on the rear. Also, I was surprised that no washers were supplied with the fixing bolts - not a big hassle as I had my own but I would have considered it good practice to have included these.
The good bits are the exhaust performs brilliantly - it's pretty quiet under light throttle so you don't look like a total idiot rolling through town, but the tone is excellent with a wide throttle opening and really gets a great edge above 5000 rpm. It's quietened a little after about 1000 mile on board, but overall is fantastic. The quality of mine was good, nice welds and good overall finish. Fitted it very easily in under an hour.
The service from MX5parts was up to the usual excellent standard as well.
5 star potential, 1 star deducted for not fitting the cut out correctly
