    true, also you can be stopped by police and be given a stop order if he thinks its to loud. vosa can also stop you and fine you and you may need to re mot afterwards.
    just take a look at the motorcycle hang out's and you will notice a massive decrease in race system's due to overpoliceing at bike hangout's.

    A lot depends on how loud you have them. My old vec had the centre box removed but 1 either side at the back. It was only a slightly deeper tone and i had no problems with it.

    A race system is a different matter

    Yep, a kid from by us with a little 106 had the loudest exhaust I've ever heard, I think it was just a pipe off the manifold!, anyway he got pulled recently & had to take the car off the road.

    It's much quieter now!

    Check Steven's comment, 2nd last in the link below.

    I'm happy with the sound (and I don't think it bothers the neighbours), I have a centre box as well as two at the back .

    Eek

    you may well get a way with it on mot day or you may be unlucky and have a vosa inspector standing over the mot tester on that day and fail.
    they are not road legal and if you get copper who is having a bad day you may well pay for it.
    Also there is the matter of insurace, any mods the insurace want to know, have a bump and if a noliagble guy comes out to check your damage you could find the insuance is void and you will have have to pay the other party as well if it is your fault.
    dont be fooled into thinking that all coopers are thick as pig sh*t, most will know what is legal and what isnt. they all tend to work shifts so sleep at daytime, so when they get woke up by some prat with a big bore exhaust it gets there back up and when back at work you can bet that they will be on the lookout for noisey exhausts.
