: Aftermarket Exhausts - Which one???
Apr 28th, 2004, 06:48 PM
I'm hoping you guys can help me. I'm planning on getting a new exhaust for my MCS, but I just can't make up my mind which one! I've done some searches on the forums and found some good reviews on several different exhausts, but what I think would really be helpful is some comments from people who actually have an aftermarket axhaust on their car and drive around in it everyday. Anyone who has an aftermarket exhaust, I would really like to hear your likes and dislikes about whatever exhaust you have.
I think I'm swaying towards the Magnaflow. It seems the best value for money and has a great sound. :D

I don't know if you can get Borla readily in the UK, but I would reccommend it highly. The install is fairly straight forward, and the quality is top-notch. Comes w/ a million mile warranty. And the sound is a thing to behold. Er - I mean if you like LOUD!

I have a PlayMINI cat back on my MC.
You can hear it here:
I drive my MC every day, and the PlayMINI is just fine to live with. In fact, the K&N makes way more noise...
Hope that helps :D

I too have the Borla exhaust and I must say it is great! A very good mellow sound, nice and throaty. The magnaflow is a little bit lowder, but the Borla gives the Mini a nice European sporty road car sound. Almost like the mid 80's 911 sound.
Plus the install is a snap, some poeple are put off by the # of pieces that are included, but it really is easy. And the best are the chrome tips. Nice big guns with the "Borla" name on top of both.

hi max, have you got the janspeed exhaust yet?
i'm considering it but haven't come across any reviews for the Cooper S yet. What were your thoughts on it, from driving the GGR?

I would go for the Playmini exhaust for your cooper S
Give Andy a ring at Playmini

I have the new mini sport twin exit. Not many people have it. I like that.
Its got a good sound to :p ( if you like it loud) easy to fit and comes with a new rear valance so it looks nice (not plate in the middle to fill the old cut out) :cool:

Magnaflow all the way. If you have your doubts, listen to this: www.MotoringCentral.com/sound_clips/Magnaflow.mp3 (http://www.MotoringCentral.com/sound_clips/Magnaflow.mp3)
