Re: Exhausts for a 147

Dont get a cheap one whatever you do, they look aweful and sound even worse.

I would get an autodelta one to be honest.

Re: Exhausts for a 147

Better off with a SuperSprint. At least it is good and not a rebadged unit at double the price.

Re: Exhausts for a 147

I have a supersprint twin pipe on my 147.. looks and sounds amazing.

If you're in Essex you are welcome to check it out. I'm frequently around Hornchurch + Barking area.

Supersprint Performance Exhaust Systems

Prices on my site are listed with the 15% discount already.

Depending on how much exhaust you want fitting would depend on the cost. If its just the rear silencer then I think a fair price for fitting would be £20-£30. If its a full system with the manifold then perhaps more like £50-£70 becuase it takes longer. Most tyre and exhaust garages should be able to quote you a price before any work starts though.

Re: Exhausts for a 147

If you can't afford SS why don't you go for Ragazzon like I did, mine sounds nice and raspy and didnt cost the earth either

You have to let people learn the hard way sometimes.

I have never understood why someone would buy a custom made exhaust if you can buy a system which has been made by someone who knows how to make a good exhaust. An exhaust as good as it can be. By spending time, money and effort testing it and making tweeks here and there, testing it again. You get what you pay for. Paying for some young kid apprentice to 'knock you up an exhaust' wouldn't ever be an option for me. Powerflow have been around a while now. I don't think I have ever heard of a single success story. Maybe the exhaust is ok for the first year or so.

Watch out for Powerflow franchise becuase they make the exhaust and give you a guarantee for the work. Then when there is a problem you go back and find out they aren't a Powerflow franchise anymore and then your guarantee means sod all. More than a few times I hear of this happening.

Re: Exhausts for a 147

Some custom places such as Torque exhausts are very good, but I agree there are a lot of undesirably places to visit.

Perhaps it's on backorder and waiting for stock at the factory in Italy?

If not then get your money back ASAP. I have an idea of who you may have ordered it from but I won't mention it here.

What parts did you order? I can see what the stock is like. 147 items are 99% always readily available.

Are you talking about Supersprint?

Nobody in the UK stocks Supersprint. Even the importer/distributor keeps very little stock. Only items which sell in high volume. Which is mainly BMW, Fiat and VW. The Supersprint range is the largest out of all the performance exhaust manufacturers. This makes it impossible to stock becuase you never know what will sell. Not to mention its very expensive to just sit on and hope for an order.

My website Supersprint Performance Exhaust Systems is clear with images. Or even the main Supersprint website performance exhaust systems, performance racing exhaust systems, performance auto exhaust systems

OperationAlfa has invited you to look at his Supersprint exhaust and he is also in Essex. It is a very good exhaust. Best of the best

Kinda hard to say maybe but the sound and the way the car feels seems so much more beefier so to speak - i went for the mid range on the sound

Hey there fella, I have the Autodelta one fitted, the price is just for the backbox. For your information the Autodelta is Ragazzon but rebranded and charge more. You would be better of going with Ragazzon if you can't afford SuperSprint

I live in Rayleigh, Essex mate so if you want to have a listen then I don't mind
