    for the coupe 330???(twin pipe)...buying a complete system later also with decat pipework on, what sort of issues are there for the sensors etc???...not worried about the MOT tho.

    Notice much difference to sound/performance???...what are people opinions?

    Not sure about the BMW ones but i fitted one to a customers VW Corrado. I was impressed with the quality of the welds and pipework but it was an awful fit. I had to modify the mounting brackets and it took some effort to get it to sit right.
    I did sound nice when it was fitted. Just sounded sporty but not too loud and chavvy.
    Ive only had experience with the one but it might have just been this system.

    Cheers Steve, I've also had dealings with Milltek on other cars, mainly Vauxhalls, agree with you about the build quality, very nice, but the fitments arw always nearly off.

    Anyone else know if its a worth while improvement over the stock system with regards to sound and performance, as already done the golftee mod on the stock to make it sound slightly deeper and better, or am i better off saving up for the UUC system?

    Never tried them on a BMW but my mates with big Audi's highly rate them. My mates are the engineering types with more money than sense so I'd listen to them!

    Its on!!

    and the sound is great, slight burble at idle, but when you plant it, it roars, and with the 2 cats gone, it feels alot quicker, the pick up is very well improved, very worthwhile £200 spent. It is blowing slightly from the main front flange, so new gaskets will be bought tomorrow.

    Will get a sound clip up over the next few days.

    Glad you got it on ok and it sounds nice
    I've heard good things about Milltek but it was just that fitting that put me off.
    Glad they are ok on BMW's
