Curious to hear the new exhaust from the inside ( a small video, maybe ) !!
Or to have your feedback..........
;)
For the sound inside you have to wait for Easter (after assembly Extractor MINI JCW PRO)....


For the sound outside:




Good listening

Yes, I have already heard it.
It's the sound inside the car that interests me..................just to check it isn't too loud.
Because, from the outside, it seems to be ( for me ) ;)

A friend of mine in Italy:

Feedback to the central BRS MotorSport instead of the original JCW:


  • Just turn on the car the noise seems that of a racing prototype, gurgles like a V8, then soften when the engine is stabilized.

  • The noise inside the car is not as strong as I expected, thanks to soundproofing Mini, in Green and Mid remaining low rpm not bother, it's just more accentuated the noise coming out from the exhaust.

  • In Sport pulls some good barrels but are not as exaggerated, very reminiscent of the sound of a A45 AMG.

For the money it costs to mount definitely worth the effort.
>:D

I will mount after installing extractor JCW MINI PRO, I will do at Easter, sorry. 0:)

I had them on my second Porsche, a 964.
Rather tough...................:eek:
Hi @boubi,

the Eibach springs should be less tough than the H & R springs. At least so I read about other forums. ;)
