    Mine was removed a week ago, replaced with a straight through pipe. Economy much better and the car pulls so much harder too. Spanner light is on, but i'll get it removed from the ecu when i get a chance.

    You wont get the light to stay out as there is no back pressure now in the exhaust system to give the correct Kpa reading,!!!!
    A pointless exercise if you ask me..
