Ok, I am considering 2 exhausts right now (although, if you think that I am leaving one out, please tell me about it) The two that I am looking at are the Quicksilver, and the UUC. My MCS is a daily driver, so I want something that sounds good, but it not annoyingly loud. I want to be able to drive through a residentual neighborhood and not **** people off. Any imput? Anyone know when the UUC is due out?
Even though the Quicksilver exhaust sound's were recorded in a parking structure (it seems to exaggerate the true sound of it through echoes), I think it sounds like the most beautiful thing in the world. It just sound like it has so much balls!
The UCC sounds a bit closer to stock and has a different tone than the QS. Doesn't the QS seem A LOT more burbly or is it just a really good echo? I like it As far as which one is louder, really hard to say, but UCC is supposed to drone the least of all the aftermarket systems.

Got It: 2/9/03. It's All Excellent.
I have the Stebro exhaust system fitted on my Mini Cooper and I can second your comments. I have seen an appreciable improvement in the mid and high range revs. The system sounds great; a nice deep throaty growl upon start-up and a low rumble on tick over. Moderate to hard accelerating produces a refined deep base sound.
The people at Stebro and the owners Dan and Andy were nice to deal with and I would definitely recommend them and their system. Even the mechanic at the dealership mentioned how good the system looked and sounded!
