Superb product, delighted with it! Have it with a pipercross induction kit and working together they sound great. The exhaust looks great and its subtly different without behaving like a wide boy!
Took a long while getting the old one off due to the two predictably rusty nuts! I kept spraying them with wd but in the end I had to hack saw and cold chisel them off (top tip1, take off the rear wheel as it helps loads and look after the studs else you'll end up having to get a new centre pipe too). Then came the hard job of finding two nuts with the same pitch thread, not easy and tried lots of places. Refused to pay Autolink prices of £6 per nut and sought advice from local Mazda dealer who came through with their best alternative. (top tip2, the wheel nuts are the same pitch! Yay). Take two wheel nuts, hack saw off the domes, reverse them and put them back on the stainless steel studs from the centre pipe.
Once the old exhaust was off, took me no more than 10 mins to get the new one on and ....driving my mk2 is even more of a pleasure. If you're thinking of getting this - do it!
