  • Exhaust note

    Hey all I'm considering buying an Astra VXR (flame red of course!) but there's a bit of a wait to get a test drive over here around Belfast. I've seen footage of the Milltek exhaust, but have no idea what the standard trapezoidal exhaust sounds like. Haven't seen a VXR on the roads over here yet.
    Does anyone have a video of them driving their VXR from inside or out, or at least what does the thing sound like?
    Thanks

    I might be poping over to Vauxhall HQ this weekend, I will see if we can get a recording...no garantee
    Also going to 888, I will see if there Astra VXR is in a condtion to get a sound out of it, but think it is stripped.
    Will let you know

      Hi Dave,
      I have run my VXR with the standard system for a week and just had the full milltek fitted today....
      The standard system is 'raspy'/sporty but very subtle/quiet - the Milltek is a deeperburble/bark and so much more in keeping with the car, plus it now drives like a train is pushing it.....and smoothly!!

        THe MIlltek will be quieter for about 300 miles until it beds in, then you'll get the full jet plane esque noise :P
        It sounds best from inside the car but the extra power from the full system is the best bit

            lol.......Regal have never seen a Milltek exhaust so I'm impressed they threw it out
            Mind you they make 50% on Stealth exhausts so I guess thats enough of a reason to sell em
