Usual prompt delivery time even to Sweden. Good advice given via e mail from MX5 UK staff. Very nice quality stainless steel. Fitted it myself ( a first for me) I was surprised that the nuts came off the cat easily.Had a problem getting the old pipes bend through the chassis brace so ended up using the hacksaw to cut the pipe in half. New pipe was a little tight locating onto the cat bolts but after a little force managed to slip them into place. Used some exhaust paste sealer on the joints before tightening them. Sprayed WD40 onto the rubber loops that hold the pipe and the hooks slipped in easy.I was a little concerned at first with the new sound of my car. Very throaty tick over and a rasp on acceleration. A little more noisy in the cab now but I dont mind as it was a cheap price to pay to pass the MOT. It would have cost me more to buy it here in Sweden and I would have had to fetch it from the supplier thanks to MX5PARTS.CO.UK

Installed the new exhaust together with the silenced cat bypass pipe yesterday.Sounds wonderful, a little raspy under hard acceleration but I don't mind that.All fitted together fine. Supplied with all gaskets and nuts and bolts and delivered in under 24 hours as usual and at the 7 day reduced price. Brilliant valueWould have had a bit of a problem removing the old cat but remembered I had a 12volt impact driver. whipped the nuts off in no time without damaging the fingers!!Just a shame that most of it cannot be seen now it is fitted.I'll need to wait and see what comments my next MOT brings!Many thanks MX5Parts.

i brought this exhaust and the silenced de-cat pipe and once again arrived in super fast fashion.very pleased with the look of the exhaust does look like it should have cost twice as much.fitting only took 40 miniutes including removing my old exhaust although i did just cut the bolts off with an angle grinder.sounds awsome when fitted rasping and gurgling like a proper sports car now but not BOY RACER style i might add.

Ordered over the bank holiday weekend and arrived on the Wednesday, fitted to my girlfriends car on Friday.This system was so easy to fit, the hardest part was getting the old exhaulst off the car (tight rusty bolts)Everything lined up with no problems. This product is very well made, but girlfreind thinks it is alittle on the noisy side (girlfriends words)!!! I love it, makes the car sound very sporty as it should.

Ordered at 2pm arrived half 8 the next morning. Can't beat that for service!Noticable audible difference. Got an un-silenced bypass fitted and I'm a little concerned that people may think I'm a chav, even at my age! I can only liken the sound to an MGB with a straight through exhaust or even a Mk2 rally Escort. I sure I will get used to it....Can't fault the quality of the product. My import specialist said it was a doddle to fit with no modification to it or my 5.Thanks again MX5Parts, I certainly won't be shopping anywhere else for my bits!

Excellent Servive as ever by MX5Parts, arrived next day at lunch. Fitted by local garage after my old standard exhaust started falling to pieces, Fitter commented on the fine quality of this exhaust and how well its fits, good so far.... drives home, well it transforms the driving experience with the hood down, almost slightly embarresed around town, but put your foot to the floor on the open road and you really feel like you driving something special, theses should of been fitted as standard! top marks!

Great product. It looks great, and sounds meaty without being 'boy racer' loud. I cheated and had mine fitted while it was in for a service. 5 stars for the workshop too.

Have to say, im an engineer, and the build quality and fabrication on this exhaust looks stunning, however the fit was a bit out...if you know what i mean. First off the main pipe from the cat back was pulled down when the rear box was fit, and the 2nd exit pipe was not protruding out from the bumper as much as the 1st one (where the origional sits), Lucky enough i sussed the problem, and made the two pipes sit right by cutting off the flange for the origional cat, and putting it between the joint flanges of the rear box and mid section pipe, all and all it looks like the rear box was too short and the mid-section angle for the flange was too sharp. Was alittle dissapointing, however made it fit and looks the nuts!! (others dont seem to have had this problem in the club, and i am fussy)!
