Milltek or Blueflame as they are easy to get hold of, make the same sort of power and look good. Think the Blueflame is slightly cheaper. no need for remap on cat back - you won't see massive difference if you did so may be worth waiting to include other mods and do the remap then.

when the time comes i plan to go for the EIP system, currently works out at a mere £251.11 for the backbox alone which is cheaper than most boxes currently here in the uk. there is a wait for them and you will have to add on the import charge too

sure does. the full system in stainless steel which includes muffler, mid pipe, hardware & gaskets comes to £452.01 inc vat

also, The R32 Exhaust Systems are built in a modular fashion so those who purchase any Series can later purchase the individual items to achieve an additional variant.

you just need to enquire about shipping for the final price, but you have to admit thats good money!

get my vote... soon... soon it will be mine! :D

hahaha, you guys make me chuckle. I urge you to check out how much EIP put on for shipping. Another £250 or thereabouts will be the reply.

I ordered a few parts from them, shortshift and some small billlet aluminum parts and the shipping came to £150!!

Try it and see.

The Phirm are a UK based supplier of EIP parts as are Westec Performance but both have their issues in obtaining parts from EIP in the first place. Might be best to give them a call and see what they have though.

agreed its a top product, just a fan of the EIP systems after seeing and hearing them on cars (all video none in the flesh mind)

didnt realise there were shipping issues though. but that can be resolved as i have some friends in the states so might be able to sort something when the time comes

And remember, if your items from EIP are stopped by customs you must tell them that the goods are vehicle parts which are zero rated on duty.

I know MacDaddy got stung for duty when he received some items from EIP. I told my shipper that they were motor parts and the package was put into my hands shortly after without another word said over duty :)
