Love the way it sounds might have to get one when they are available:)

We recently took a base MINI Cooper out for a test and came up with some rather interesting conclusions. One of them is that the stock exhaust is nowhere near what it's supposed to be.

That's probably the biggest problem the MINI Cooper hardtop model has to be honest. The 3-cylinder 1.5-liter turbocharged engine delivers tons of torque and power from down low and driving it is an absolute joy.

For any up and coming, regular driver out there the MINI Cooper will be enough for their daily dosage of adrenaline kicks. It's small, light on its feet and funky, but it would be absolutely brilliant if the engine were a bit louder.

Inside the cabin, the sound insulation works so well, you hardly get to hear it at all. Only in Sport mode and at over 4,500 RPM it makes itself heard with the windows up. By then wind noise will come in and make things as awkward and loud as possible too.

The guys from Remus have apparently solved this issue. They just launched a custom exhaust for the Cooper and it's a godsend piece of kit, to be honest, transforming the car and the way it sounds, making it a complete package.

According to them, the system you hear in the video below is homologated and includes a front silencer and pipes but it doesn't include the tailpipes you see. They are sold separately and can be had in various guises.

Adding the Remus cat-back sport exhaust to your MINI will not only change its sound but also drop some weight. Don't expect big changes though, we're talking about less than a kilo.

The price for the complete package is €756 without VAT. Chip in some tailpipes that go from €80 to €185 and you're looking at under €1,000 for a custom exhaust that actually sounds good.

I was all set to spend some major coin on the Quicksilver exhaust for my F56 - then after a suggestion on the NA forum I instead opted for a sub $200 muffler delete. Heavy muffler cut out and a straight pipe welded in its place. It worked brilliantly- the Cooper has the sporty tone it deserves, and I'm pretty certain it sounds similar to that video. Of course I still have the original chrome tip and not the fancy Remus one ��

Hee hee, yes, and it sounds seriously nice; i am v tempted. However i dont want to ruin the high speed refinement of the car and wonder what it'll be like-dont want a droning on the mway! I might wait till mine rusts-if it does-not sure what the oem one is made of but 10mnths in and it's still lovely and shiny around the silencer!

@pjsjr13 Hello everyone it is Mike from Remus. I did in fact just receive the new product release for the Non S F55 and F56. We also released a system specifically for the F55 S to cover the entire range. I will be creating a thread shortly with all of the required information. If I receive enough interest I can have an air freight shipment sent to receive them earlier as opposed to waiting for them to arrive by sea. Will post additional info shortly and please let me know should you have any additional questions. Talk to you soon.

Mike

@mikeswagon I just wanted to chime in and let you know that the Remus tips are actually adjustable so you can choose how far out you want them to actually stick out. They are separate from the silencers themselves and allows you to line up the tips to your liking. Hope that clears it up and let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks.

Mike
