  • Baffles?

    I am really pleased with my VXR and had it 2 months now.

    The only issue I have with it is that once warm if i rev the engine on stand still and take the foot off the accelerator i hear a tinking noise. I also hear it when i switch the engine off from a run (normal run not a ragging the ars* of it run).

    Is normal to have this sound or not (think it could be the baffles in the exhaust)

    Oh it is standard model no mods at all.

    Is it a problem, do i take it back (leased so could be a problem) or what?

            the ticking after a run could just be the car cooling down

              It is not a continual ticking like cooling it definately is the exhaust when reved on the drive when revs drop off or when switched off from a drive.

              If the exhausts do this then fine but i am concerned it might get worse.
