  • Milltek Race Fitted

    So today the VXR got its first real Mod. I treated her to a Full Stainless Milltek Race Exhaust from Thorney Motorsport in Milton Keynes. Had the option of the loud or quiet version - no one needs to ask which one i went for?!!

    Sounds unreal!!

          Spot on Mark! Looks like you've embraced the Thorney experience! Way to go on the exhaust you will absolutely love it over the oem. Give the car time to learn it's got that thing underneath now and then go drive and enjoy!

                Thanks Paula! I do love it, the only thing stopping me from driving around all night is lack of petrol from the drive back

                Does the car adjust to it at all then, or do you mean just bedding the exhaust in (which gets louder)? I know its soo much better than OEM and feels much less restrictive

                Opppps!!! They seemed keen to sell me the quiet system so maybe it was the last one!! Sorry buddy, at least you will have been paid by then!

                    I paid my deposit on sat for the milltek loud. So shouldn't be long until it get shipped over. They dont look like a £1000 pounds worth lying on the ground. Just hope the sound makes up for it..

                        Yeah i know, its a painful moment handing over your card at the end! The drive back really did make it up though!!

                              Well thats what i thought, but apprantly they have changed the design so its the backbox that alters the sound and the centre pipe is the same.
