Ordered this Sunday night, arrived Tuesday evening. Looks like it should cost a lot more than it did - feels quality...

Fitted myself it yesterday - not a really difficult job. The included template for the bumper cut-out produced a perfect result - although it's a right pain trying to cut it with a hack saw as suggested 'coz the bumper is so flexible. Gave up after 5 minutes of not getting anywhere fast and used a dremel instead (5 minute job). Actually installing the exhaust is a doddle, the hard part is getting the old Mazda exhaust off (had to remove the chassis brace to get it out). After that it was smooth - I used new rubber hangers, and didn't have any problem with either side drooping - it just fits perfectly (and the two-piece design makes it easier to install with the car up on rhino ramps than a regular OEM exhaust). I expect this is an easy job for the more mechanicly inclined, but as I'm a bit rubbish at this sort of thing (and haven't done an exhaust before), it took me about 2 hours (mostly spent getting the old exhaust off).

Once installed, it looks fantastic - Mazda should have had something like this on in the first place :)

Haven't run it much yet - but a short test-drive suggests it's a fair bit louder than my old OEM-exhaust-with-a-hole-in-it. The deep sounding burble on idling is lush, and it's generally nice under load - it's not a bad-boy Corsa with a silly huge can on the back - but there is a bit of a harsh rasp part way up the rev-range (I'm hoping that lessens off a bit once it's had a bit of time to bed in). Worth noting that I've got a Racing Beat intake under the bonnet which will be impacting on the sound as well..

Overall though, superb kit for the money - very pleased with it :) Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
