    So how much together then?

    I know it was £600 for the fabricated exhaust but that was before you went on to get the electronic valve controller fitted.

    Also, is it insurance friendly? I am with Esure and they have an open mind if and when I get a non-manfacturer exhaust. If I went for a Monza, I wouldn't be making this comment.

    It was £250 for valve and switch fitted after , but £800 if done together!

    It was £180 extra premium for exhaust and tmc from Admiral

    My GF found my standard back box in the garage and confronted me as to why I had an exhaust on the floor....ermm....Que response..."you know mine has that special tuning thing, well they swap the exhaust too and that's the original one...look at all the standard parts over there!"

    ...PHEW!  :sweat:

    Bemused look from GF, followed by "sad ba*tard'  :thumb:

    Once I fitted my "secretly acquired" GTT induction and my wife saw the red airbox engine cover in the shed and asked why it wasn't on the car. I said it just worked better without it. Not sure she completely believed me.
    I'm sure this car will one day be cited as 'reason for divorce'.

    It was £250 for valve and switch fitted after , but £800 if done together!

    To clarify, the electronic valve, is that automatically activated over 3000 rpm (or suchlike)?
    Can they do it or have you got it as a switchable valve with a control on the dash?

    I have a switch hidden under the windows blue & me plaque , so my wife doesn't find out about the exhaust , fat lot that did , cause I forgot to close the valve the night before she drove it. Doh! :thumbd: you can imagine what happened. Big time grief!

    Will post picture of it tomorrow.
