I presume Jen means exhuast system? could be wrong.

I cant see them buying the exhaust and giving it to you, I'm pretty sure you can buy it directly from milltek. Anyway if thats what you mean.

I never could understand the scottish accent or women for that matter.

ok boys not sure why you cant understand what i wrote but here we go again

Jen wants the milltek system for her car but has a problem i cant get to APS to receive the "group" buy discount to us as a forum.....

to get the same system direct from milltek is a extra 100 pounds. they wont give me the discount....!!!

Jen, why don't you try Star Performance in Kirkcaldy? It's on your way between Aberdeen & Edinburgh. Jim, the owner has an A5 3.0TDI with all the mods. He has a Remus exhaust set-up on his car, but could do Milltek.

Hi Jen, why don't you agree a price with Ed @ APS (I assume it's his keen pricing that's attracting you?) and ask him to have Milltek deliver it to one of their agents local to you (maybe Star as I8TQB4IP suggests) who you can then negotiate a fitting fee with?

yeah i dont see why i have to miss out on the great price because of my location seems sad :(

ill give Ed a call.

in regard to Star, i spoke to the gents wife who answered the phone when i mentioned Milltek she said that Jim would prob not recommend this system!!! which put me off striaght away. I have a garage up here that will fit it i just need to lay my hands on it without paying a increase.

That's bizarre as Star are listed on Milltek's website as a stockist!

They also seem to have another supplier in Fordoun - anywhere near you?

Star does both, but the Mrs was meaning Jim didn't recommend it if you didn't want it louder but just wanted a more 'refined' sound. Although I have to say the TDI package price looked ok to me.

Jen, Drivers in Glasgow is also a Milltek supplier I believe, and you should see if they can sort you out if Ed can't.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that Milltek vs Remus is an apples with apples comparison. The Milltek is a complete 1-unit cat-back system, whereas Remus is sold as 2 separate mufflers. Presumably some cutting & fitting is required with Remus .. and what would be the revert to stock situation?
