    Im looking into getting a scorpion cat-back system (STW) for my 318is & was wondering what people thought of them? I.e -sound? Does it drone through the car at motorway speeds? Ease of fitment? Perfect fit? As much info as poss from anyone who has one on a car that they've owned?
    Many thanks guys!

    not got 1 maself...no-need...tho a think a few off the guys on here hav 1....if your worried about the noise...why not get 1 custom made...that way you can actually decide how loud or how quiet its gonna be...you may be surprised to find thers very little difference inprice!!

    Ive got a scorpion on my 318 and had 1 on the 325. They are excellent quality and fit.
    They are a little bit noisy on the motorway though.

    Thats incredibly cheap! Was that a local exhaust specialist or a nationwide one like a powerflow dealer? When u say rear section do u mean cat-back or just a back box?
    I had a powerflow cat back system on my old Fiesta Si, was awful on motorways, but sounded awesome any other time.
    Many thanks.

    from the box just behind the cat bud
    its a local place called exhaust- a -fix in darlington
    i went to the local powerflow place i wasnt overly impressed they wanted 200 + the stuff looked good quality but they didnt seem to keen to do it told me they could do it in about a fortnights time which was no good i was on an impulse purchase lol
    when its not raining i'll take some pics cos all the welds and stuff are really impressive it appears to be a quality bit of kit
