Aftermarket exhaust

Does any one on Oahu have the Alta exhaust on their MINI?

I would like to hear it first before I purchase one.

You might ask Robert F. from MINI sales- he might know.

I've heard it on someones car. Sounds good but it's not real loud if that is what you are looking for.
I personally think the JCW exhaust sounds perfect. It's unlikely you'll get much (if any) extra power from an aftermarket catback.

oops.. Forget that last sentence..


If you do get an aftermarket one I might be interested in your JCW exhaust.

Not like this is REALLY helpful, but there is a guy on the island who has it. I met him at one of the HMMC events, it sounded really nice. MotorMouth probably knows who it is, I just can't remember his name.

He might be at the next club meeting at the Round Table Pizza in Kailua at Enchanted Lakes Shopping Center on Sunday, June 26, 2011 from 3-5pm

They should be OK with installing the Borla for the MINI.

Which location of ESH?

Probably the one on King Street downtown. You think other locations are better?

You can ask any given location if they have done a MINI install in the recent past or if they do Borla installs much.

It's pretty basic. Just have to check for any leaks.

I run the Invidia Q300 Exhaust system on my 2013 coupe. The setup just sounds sexy, I have hat combined with a catless downpipe as well.

We install the Invidia as well as the Milltek. They both sound good and sporty. I would say the Milltek is a little bit better quality, but also a little more expensive.
