Its 1000% better than standard.....a real v6 sound without ever being intrusive. I expect it to get deeper (and better) as it carbons-up
Thanks again David.. Looks like I'll be ordering a 18 as a few have said the 14 is rather loud!!

Sure....Gilesgate Autocare in Hexham.

Geraint builds exhausts to E51 'Highway star' fitment, so please remember to let him know if you have a different version as it will matter 👍

We have an @Elementian 18" centre box & standard back box on ours. Nice tone to it & it's not too loud on the motorway.

Straight pipe would be horrific & raspy. Youtube some VQ35 exhaust videos.

As much as i would like some more noise from ours, i can't help but think it would make it unpleasant on longer journeys, the kids already say its noisy in the back.

My kids used to moan about the noise ... after I said they could always catch the bus they don’t complain anymore ... bad dad but daisey is my baby as well...
