Nobody? Milltek is one of the best in the business... they're responsible for all the Bentley exhausts..

Miltek makes great systems but in the US they are popular in the Audi market.

Agreed... The Millteks non-resonated with 100cell on my previous Audi (B6) S4 4.2L V8 sounded like madness. No regrets that despite heart and soul put into the Audi 8months in from showroom purchase, I fetched an awesome price from an Audi fanatic in town to buy my much adored E92 M3.

I have to say that the Millteks are also pretty decent on my other vehicle 2004 JCW MCS. Pity the Millteks weren't ready for distribution in Oct/Nov so i took a leap of faith to the Vorsteiner Titanium exhaust.

Interesting. I guess the first picture was a place-holder.

Congratulations! I've been waiting for this system for a long time. Please post sound clips! Also, please comment on drone/resonance, if any, and weight vs stock muffler.Thx

yes please do. I had a non-res Milltek on my B6 S4 and the sound was awesome, however it did have drone in the lower RPM ranges but I didn't care much because of the wonderful music it made most of the time. Looks like no cutting involved also which is a ++ for me.

I would definitely consider it as long as the price is right.

Kinda looks like they took the two cans, turned them 90 degrees and connected them.

Ok so here's some pics









Oh and while I was there a bloke pulled up in this to drop his mate off who was picking up a track prepped CSL





Early impressions of the exhaust are great. It has def made a difference to throttle response but as for more power, it's hard to tell without a dyno, it def feels quicker.

The noise is perfect. There is no drone in the cabin and the exhaust note does not intrude on that of the engine. I've done about 350 miles with it on now and the note has got a bit deeper. It sounds great on tickover and past 5k revs it absolutely sings. IMO - perfect!

Very nice. Thanks for the pics.

Based on the rear shot, I looks like the cannister is hidden pretty well.
