    Default free powerflow exhaust need advise what should i do

    well just been to tyre place to get 2 tyres fitted the guy who fitted them asked me if i wanted to do a stright swop for his exhaust a power flow one. from his 3.2 gsi
    after asking why he told me he just wants the car to be a basic gsi hes already took the 18" wheels off to go back to orginal gsi wheels but now whats it to sound standard.
    so he put it up on his ramp and he shown me he told me he still has the receipt for £500 for the exhaust.
    he told me he will only swap for a standard gsi exhuast which sounds right as he wants it standard

    it sounds amazing it comes out of the cat in to 2 boxes then from their it splits in to 2 with no back boxes.

    should i do it ?????
    hes car has some issues he told me as it was a cat right off the car hunts for a minute would this be the exhaust or is it the temp sensor that he thinks it is????

    when he started it up across the car park i got all excited at the sound just have to talk wife round

    he also told me he will swap them over for free and it will be a stright swap i took a short vid of it in the workshop as he put it on the ramp to show me

    on the exhurst its stamped up longlife thats all i could see on the 2 boxes after the cat

    i took a small vid hopefully it will up load

    Sounds awesome! And if its Stainless will last a lifetime. Can you get him to take you out in the car to make sure it isnt too noisey at higher speeds?

    good answer will have to go and see him and ask that see if he will take us down motorway to see what it sounds like
    " but the sound is really nice"
    i know know why people go for the after market it makes it sound like a v6 from the back the standard one is so quiet

    Personally I'd do it. If you don't like it you could sell it or px for a standard one from another member.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
