Well due to the difference between UK and USA Spec Mini.
None of the exhaust system designed and manufactured outside of US is going to work....

So US folks are back to square one, with the exception of VIPCUSTOMPARTS.....

Alright so.... All the Euro exhaust manuf is scratching their head on the V band connection.
I think the best bet is to get the JCW Exhaust lol.... It will probably be the earliest option we have..

It does look good and sound great - I just can't justify the cost that Mini want for the exhaust, and honestly I think it's a bit steep compared to the cost of the whole car. Doesn't stop me wanting it though - man maths!!......

I havent heard a sound clip of the JCW yet.
However if you take other manuf in considerations.
Such as Remus , Supersprint, Intelligent Frequency. The price isnt that bad.
I wonder if i could get some sort of discount for that exhaust from my local Mini Dealership since i work at a dealer myself lol.

Well i am the first person in the US to test fit the Miltek unit.
I currently having my Milltek front pipe to get the full marmon and welded on so it would bolt up to factory Downpipe.

I then will be providing Milltek the right size flange so they can get the US spec development started.

UPDATE:

So my Milltek is getting put on tomorrow, keep an eye out for a video / soundclip over the weekend.

Will be running a Milltek Catback System, with NO RESONATOR.
