    I was going to, quoted £120 but he had quite the wait time, ended up using a Zaustworx Res delete for £60, 20 minutes to install!

    I love it, like really love it! I debated getting it done for months as I didn't want any drone! Gotta admit when I first drove it I wasn't a fan, it was waaaay louder than I had expected, but after a day or so I fell in love with it!

    However that's only when getting on it, driving around normal you can't really notice the difference, just a very slight increase in tone, it's nice!

    Here's mine,

    When you’re just driving normal it’s fine as soon as you hit 3K RPM it gets pretty loud very quickly but it sounds nice not like the shitty ford 1.0 eco booms with a hole in their exhaust and a fake BOV stuck on the engine making a fake hissing noise from the guys at halfrauds with a “BecauseFord” sticker on the front windscreen.

    (sorry I got carried away)

    Appreciate the videos and opinions lads! I think im going to have to give it a go. E especially as its so cheap.

    I do a good bit of city driving so hopefully it doesn't cause too much of a scene

    Yeah that's my dilemma haha. Not that I have the car yet lol but like to look in advance. Tony banks is good in Leeds but its a bit of a trek for me. He quoted 560 for a straight pipe from the cat to tips at the rear. May just go the res delete only seeing as its only a 2 year lease..

    Not on my Seat but on a previous Skoda I had the silencer removed, new tips put on and the bumper cut out for £170. Was still going strong when I sold it 3 years later.

    Not sure how much just for the delete but I'd recommend the work they did.

    Bit of a mess up on my part. The Zaustworx Res delete I got ended up being the correct shape but had the wrong diameter at one end for my car. It would have required a bit of fettling / welding to fit it correctly so im going to put it up for sale on here soon.

    They also sell the required step down sleeve clamps, worth a call!

    This. This. And so much this.
    As an owner of a 1.4 with a backbox and res delete, just do away with the backbox. I'll be adding my res back soon as the drone is rather irritating.

    Getting my res put back in if anyone is interested message me. Sounds good but I’m fed up with the noise for how I use the car (daily , long drives, early starts and late finishes) so going back to stock exhaust
