Question Anywhere in the UK still sell the Magnaflow Cat Back?

Hey

Been looking at different cat back systems for my 05 Cooper S for a while now !

At first i was considering the Borla aggressive cat back, but i heard that it isn't actually much louder than stock :O So that is no good for me! If i am paying almost 900 i wanna hear it !!

I have heard a lot of people say that the Magnaflow system is pretty loud and gives decent power gain, so i am very interested in purchasing it ^.^ However, i am having trouble finding a place that stocks it in the UK!

From reading previous threads (Though many of them were from several years back!), i saw that Graham Goode (GGR) and Tokyo Express apparently sell this exhaust, but i can't seem to find it on either of their websites! Have emailed them, but haven't had any response so far. I might try giving them a ring later!

Have checked on Ebay, but i would have to get it shipped over from America, which i am guessing is gonna be a little pricey >.<

Just wondering if anyone knows any places that still sell them?
Or if there are any good alternative exhausts? If it pops and makes noise i am happy haha !

Thanks

Just an update

Just to update everyone on this in case anyone else is interested in this exhaust, i managed to find it on the Graham Goode website! (Feel like such a n00b for not noticing it in the first place! >.<)

Only problem now is that i am really not sure whether to go for this or the Milltek cat back, as the Milltek seems to be such a popular choice !

Hmmmm, any suggestions?

If you're paying almost 900 for a cat-back, someone saw you coming.

John Cooper Motorsport only charged 1500 for a new manifold, centre section with cat and longer leads for the O2 sensor, plus the back boxes...

If you have 900 to spend you can get a full Milltek system (cat back + manifold and sports cat), from motorsportworld.co.uk.

I have it on mine and it is by far the best thing I have done

Janspeed with miltek exhaust

Janspeed Manifold & HF Cat plus Milltek Catback 930 - fitting 141

This is one i had last on my 2002 cooper S, sad had to sell it.

But getting a 2004 cooper s soon, going for tis exhaust with 17% pulley supercharger reducer, plugs, alta v2 cai, grs intercooler, uprated pads.

Anyone suggest a better set up for around 2000 gbp?

Thanks for all the replies guys

Well it would be 900 for the Borla Aggressive cat back system if i got it from Lohen (868 to be exact :P but that doesn't include the cost of fitting) For some reason it is an extra 103 for the 04-06 model!

Can get the Magnaflow cat back for 450 and the milltek for about 500 :P

Was looking at getting the full miltek system, or the janspeed manifold with the sports cat but i heard that the sports cats sometimes don't pass an MOT?? That is the only thing that puts me off >.<

Was mainly drawn to the Magnaflow because it is so loud :P But i am guessing the full milltek system is pretty damn impressive!
