I bought this after attending the OC spring rally in Cornwall where I picked up an MX5 parts discount flyer. As usual, it arrived the following day after ordering. Be sure to order the Mazda copper flange gasket too if you buy one of these. The quality and finish is superb. I soaked the two 17mm flange nuts with release oil an hour or so before I removed them. There are two studs which you would'nt want to shear off. I still ended up taking my to my local exhaust factor to fit as I could not release the three rubber hangers with the car just on axle stands. They also remarked on how good quality it looked and how well it was finished. When I told them the price I paid they were amazed. They allowed me to help them and it fitted on in minutes. The charged me just £10 to put in their tea money:-).
It sounds lovely! A little louder than stock but not at all boy racer. It has a lovely deep almost MGB burble which suits this car just right.
Really please with this great product.
