Tempted by an exhaust
« on: September 24, 2020, 07:22:25 PM »
Had my mk5 gti for just on 12 months, absolutely love it. Bar a panel filter and h & r springs it's standard. Tempted by an exhaust and the miltek non res is a tempter. For say a budget of 500 is there another to consider?!?

BCS does some great exhausts. What you after? A full exhaust? Cat back, turbo back? Loud or quiet?

Not something to intrusive really. A little louder and a bit more drama than current.

Cat back, probably non res

Those guys have a good price for the exhaust

Have any one tried it? I asked them for videos but unfortunately they can’t support me but the reviews on ebay are good.

my mate brought the Scorpion cat back (non res) for just shy of £500, it fits great, looks good and sounds nice, im tempted with one next year.

on the exhaust subject.. will all these miltek / scorpion & BCS systems fit up to a 3" downpipe?

I'd heard of BCS being mentioned all over this forum, but looking into it I wouldn't want to spend all that money on a powervalve because I'd personally prefer something that sounds beefy even in the low revs! Not similar to stock (which is what a few BCS owners have mentioned).

After speaking to the guys at R-tech they've convinced me to go with a full decat non res turbo back from Cobra. They fit it for free as well

Will be having loads of videos on my YouTube channel on the process when I get it done early January

I don’t think all their systems are valved, you can still have loud if you want it.
I have the prestige and I’m more than happy with the slightly sportier than stock tone with no drone.
