    I've had a Powerflow in the past (on a Civic) and it was fine. Not as good as the Greddy system I replaced it with but good for the price (mine was £300). However, the exhaust depends on the fitter as many have said.

    As for size though, I'd go for a 2.5 inch. Don't forget to make sure they mandrel bend the system as well (to make sure it's the same width all the way through).

    My E36 316 Compact has a Longlife system fitted to it (by previous owner) .. it is louder than a standard exhaust system but not at all intrusive IMO and gives the car a nice deep throated purr without it sounding like a trackday car

    Looking at the system it appears to be well made out of good quality materials and fits nicely to the car with no evident dodges.

    I have seen many Powerflow systems over the years and agree with what has already been said in this thread that the quality of the system can vary depending which dealer you get to fabricate and fit it.

    It is worth adding that i know what a good quality weld should look like as i am a qualified motor vehicle mechanic and i also have years of experience with welding ... however i no longer work in the trade due to an injury sustained at work :(
