Hello, I’ve got an s5 2008, I want to upgrade the exhaust system, everyone says get a milltek, but I don’t really know what I’m buying, there diff sorts on eBay, I dint wanna get something that sounds just a bit better than it is, I want a big diff!

I could get a custom made one made locally from a garage but not sure if it’s actually that much bettter getting a milltek?

thanks

Milltek do a very reasonably priced cat back for the V8 and sounds good too. If you want LOUD go for the non resonated system. If yours is an Auto go for the resonated system.

Alright mate, yeah mines a manual, on eBay I can get a for system inc down pipes for like £1170, but I’m not sure if that’s bottom of the range and if it won’t make much difference to what ive got on it atm

some people spending £2500 on a milltek, I just don’t wanna take a side wood step

I too am considering something for my old V8 S4. I have read that Miltek are among the best. Given that they make many many systems and sell worldwide then their experience and reputation is their guarantee. If you buy unknown stuff on Ebay it will likely come in from China or wherever and COULD be good cos they copy the Milteks I guess, but you are risking paying good money for a so so system. Unless you are an expert (which I am NOT) then I would go with a trusted manufacturer.

Replaces the centre resonator. It's where most gains can be had from an exhaust system.

If you've gone for a catback system it will include an x pipe.

Lol Jamie, personally I would wait and fit the set together cos you may introduce some strange balance and tracking problems.......
