Are they really that bad? 96db online states, so is that road legal?. Just been watching you tube.

Cant find any second hand. Ones one guy selling one earlier but would only take bank transfer only. Which i was reluctant to do for protection reasons.

Not bad, if You hate your neighbours . Droning on motorway etc. Fun on the beginning for sure, but wouldn't put it on a daily.

Cold start in the morning is loud, just don't sit on the drive warming the car up as the neighbours won't be too happy. I have had mine on for a year or 2 now and the car is my daily. It is loud and it does drone quite a lot but always makes me smile.
This purchase was also my early mid life crisis !! Not really suitable for long journeys and will eventually make my 2 kids deaf.... doesn't stop them falling asleep in the car though.
Car has been through 2 Mots and not a word was said.
This exhaust isn't for everyone but it is for me

I leave at 5.15. Not one of my neighbours has said anything, Maybe you need something more subtle than the Marty, let us know what you decide on.

I'm running it as a daily for the better part of a year. Its insanely loud, sometimes its embarrassing when people stare but its super fun (early midlife crisis for me too!)
