    Default BSR stage 3 performance

    Well so far I have only given it a short test, as I had my old exhaust in the car with me on the way home. Will post further info from tomorrow onwards.

    So far, very impressed. Pulls well, sounds good and accelerates fast.

    This is good! Been at work today so sorry for the late update!

    Simply put it is very good. Transforms the car completely.
    I would describe the engine and exhaust sound as a rich, deep powerful growl accompanied but that lovely whistle sound of the turbo spooling up when engine is under load - much clearer turbo spool sound than before.

    Exhaust note is great, rumbles but does not get on the nerves on motorway. Driving it feels even more effortless, light blips of the throttle give immediate power and the road just gets eaten up!

    Acceleration is vastly improved, especially in the higher gears, surprised me actually. Not yet given it a big boot from the start, just been pulling away normally then giving some boot. But those tests are still to come...

    Fuel economy seems to have actually improved, which I am still to fully test. But now I am getting 28-30 mpg normal instead of 24 and motorway has gone up to 40-41mpg!
    As I say I will see how long a tank lasts me this week driving to and from work and gauge it from that. (If I can restrain my right foot!!!) Those right foot blips are very addictive.




    More to follow........
