    You can ask on virtually any car forum and you'll get told Cobra is borderline too loud.

    Its one thing to have free flowing but there needs to have been some thought to the tone as well otherwise it just sounds gash and gets annoying really fast if the car is a daily driver...for everyone in the vicinity!

    Milltek each time IMO as they state they aim for a subtle/non boy racer tone plus they are proven quality.

    Find the drone fine if your in the front, passengers in the rear however always like to tell me it is really loud, so I dont have people in the back now

    Maybe we can meet up one day so I can hear the exhaust ?
    I've had my engine rebuilt due to my old cowboy mechanic, so I'm still wearing in the Valves but once I'm all sweet to go on the Motorways I'll give you a shout mate If you want my number to organise something just PM me

    Ry was your exhaust system Resonated or Non-Resonated. I've heard yours on your YouTube but I've always been told that videos don't do anything justice for sound which is right
    I'll probably be down near you soon as my heads been tightened down. I'll end up going King of the Ring one event I'll let you know.

    u33db In my opinion the Milltek is nicer but the only thing that's pushing me towards the Cobra is the 3" system instead of a 2.5" system. This is mainly because I want loud pops and bangs with some flames but I'm stuck on figuring out how to get these at the moment

    Down the line yeah I'll be looking at Remap but I won't be getting the Engine Forged so I'd only go to 300bhp max

    Mine was Non res mate.

    They aren't loud off boost and then give off a lovely sound when you put your foot down.

    I preferred it over my Remus tbh!

    Let me know when you are KOTR

    Me and some of the boys go there for a pint sometimes as it's really local for us. I'd like to get there a couple of time before I move up north 👍🏼

    Cobra utter garbage. Sound awful on the Astra. I've got a Cobra back box on my EP3 too and that's poor too
