    There are a couple around but they seem to just do more loudness than much else. I personally would be warey not because of warranty or anything like that but just losing that cheeky little note the standard one has.

    Saying that I am waiting to see whether the rumoured new Abarth one will be good/a sensible price, and if I hear an aftermarket that sounded much better rather than just louder I'd consider it.

    The Romeo Ferrari system is the best I've heard, you'll find the vids on Youtube.
    As Keith Richards tells it, Jones came up with the name "The Rollin' Stones" (later with the 'g') while on the phone with a venue owner. "The voice on the other end of the line obviously said, 'What are you called?' Panic. The Best of Muddy Waters album was lying on the floor—and track one was 'Rollin' Stone Blues'".

    Unless it rusted and fell off, why would anyone want to replace the exhaust on the A500? It looks great (better than the quad pipes) and sounds amazing!

    Yeah I do agree, would really have to sound amazingly better for me to bother!

    Its also a pretty distinctive sound with the standard exhaust I think...

    Anyone knoe of the cons of using that header pipe from ebay.it without the cat (besides CO2)? I was surprised to see the cat so close tothe turbo but I guess the quicker it heats up the better.
