In a couple of weeks I'm having Milltek non-res cat back fitted. I'm wondering what it will be like on the motorway. I want it to be fairly quiet when cruising at 80/90, only noisy when I give it some gas. Had a big back box on my scooby a couple of years ago and was awful for motorway driving because of it. Can someone please enlighten me?

Thanks,

Jo

When you want it to be loud, it is bloody loud :D But when crusing it's as quiet as standard, if not quieter.

You will love hard acceleration, the sound is just amazing :top:

As far as I'm aware I don't think so, but having a MkIV myself I can't help I'm afraid!

no you'll be fine, you'll only really need the sheild if the tails dont clear the rear bumper far enough and even then most cars only have them to prevent sooting of paintwork and body

Cool. Do they need any additional heat shielding round the tailpipes on Mk5?

OK will do. AmD is quite a treck to get to, more so now they have moved. I didn't realise until earlier today that they called in the receivers in February and got bought out by Big Boys Toys. I hope they didn't lose any IP or expertise in the process. Hopefully the good guys at AmD have moved along with the business!
