  • milltek in real life

    hi every one,

    im really stuck with this one, basically im picking up my new vxr next week and was thinking about getting the full milltek fitted that same afternoon, but i really would like to hear what one sounds like in real life are there any meets in the bedfordshire/milton keynes area this week that people with millteks will be attending?

    i just want to be 100% its what im after as i had an exhaust on my last car and got sick of it(and it was not an stupidly loud one), its a very personal choice how a person wants their car to sound, i know people rave about them, but im not too sure about the popping sound, does it do this on over-run after accelleration then letting off? sound clips of the standard exhast sounded nothing like the standard car in real life so want to bee 100% with this one as its over a grand i could spend else where on the car if the exhaust is not for me.(so don't really want to go by the milltek video clips as they are low quality anyway)

    I know i could go to thorney(this is where i would be getting it done) and see what their car sounds like but i did'nt really want to feel under pressure when im making my decision if you know what i mean, i've heard they are great guys but i just want to be able to see what i think and if its not for me walk away without feeling i would have wasted anyones time.

    its been in the back of my mind what to do all week and its doing my head in.

    any help much appreciated

      Give Thorney a ring mate, I'm sure he can help you out, he'll know if/when there will be someone around with the Milltek so that you can have a listen to it

                          We've always one one or another Milltked VXR Astra here at some point, feel free to come over, have a listen and then decide at your leisure, no need to make a decision there and then.....we don't do a double glazing sales job and say "sign here of the price goes up" or anything

                          I tend not to rely on sound files as the sound you get is more to do with your PC sound card rather than realife so I agree with you desire to actually hear one.

                          I'll even let you have one of our cups of hot chocolate.....no strings

                            would have loved to see your car in the flesh aussie, thanks for the offer but i dont finish work till half four on friday. no doubt i will see it at some point in the future when i come along to different owners days ect.

                            thanks again.

                              if i came over would it be possible for you to take me out for a ride in one as i wanted to hear what this "popping" thing is all about, as i understand this only really happend under accelleration, rather than reving?

                              i have heard about the legendary Thorney hot chocolate, might have to take you up on this one. if i dont get hold of someone nearer to home to take me out for a ride in theirs i will definitely come over, thanks for the offer.
