Remus Race Fitted

What a difference the noise is fab and the look is amazing. (will post pics when clean)

Yes there is a drone, but it does kick out through the rev range so for now doesn't bother me (ask me again in 6 weeks)

But one other thing the Remus does do is a great job on the look of the back end, gone has the grey/silver box of the original system, now each two have super angled pipes with black faced boxes, leaving the back aching for a rear diffuser (next on list)

At the moment very happy!

Thanks Dude!

I wasn't too sure about the drone myself after the first run back from the garage, but took her out last night for a blast Hardly any drone when having fun but round town there is a very noticeable drone between 2 - 3rpm

Luckily I don't do a lot of urban mileage, in fact I don't do much mileage at all, so I can live with it. If I had to travel in and out of town every day then I would probably be booking it back in the garage for stock or sport!

I guess it's like living with the missus, get through the daily drone and the excitement will kick in every now and then

Didn't get mine fitted by Evolve mate, just supply

As I am based in the Northwest I always use Phoenix motor sport in Accrington, I would trust them with any motor!

When are you fitting, is it next week? Have you physically heard the race....they are loud!

LOUD...there is no mistaking the system.

I am yet to be convinced if I can live with it. Been out a few times, rural is fantastic, urban (town stop / starts) is going to take some getting used to.

Off to the Lake District this weekend so I am sure I will be singing a different tune come Monday

Added a few pics of the remus fitted (sorry bad light)

Before



After









They do stick out further on the E90, about 1 1/2 inch, keeps the shit off the back though!

Getting more used to the system now

I don't suppose anyone with a Remus Race fitted is near Heathrow or Reading are they? Wanted to get a brief passenger ride to check the noise before getting the Remus fitted. Any offers?

Thanks Speedtrap, probably a bit of a trek. As you live in London and presumably drive there a bit can you let me know your thoughts on the "drone" ? I do a lot of motorway driving and obv a fair bit of that is between 2k-3.5k rpm which is where people say the drone is. Desperate for a nicer exhaust sound but don't want to regret it on the m/way commute

There is drone if you must know I normally drive my car alone, but if you have your missus and family in it, then I suggest the Remus Sport (which I have before) and that do not drone at all.

Drone for the Remus Race is between 2k to 3K which is quite irritating sometimes if you have a call or want to listen to music. Hope this helps.
