The more expensive the car, the more tuners charge for the same parts: simple.

But you don't have to pay silly money. Go to an exhaust fabricator, and they will make you an exhaust to any design for under a grand. We're just mugs for tolerating the price inflation. If we didn't accept the silly prices, then prices would soon come down...

What's the advantage of lagging the downpipes? Does it make a difference to the way it sounds?

Keeps your feet cooler!
More energy retained in exhaust gas as less loss through conduction = better turbo spool, hotter exhaust for more pops and bangs on the overrun.

Cheers Paul but I don't have enough pennies!

Plus I'm happy with mine. Getting downpipes fitted finally next weekend so should sound epic!

I would like this for both the feet cooling but mainly for increased chance of exhaust flamage. Is this a tricky job? DIY or best left for a pro?

I like the sound of all those things...hmmm... And it just so happens the engine is out of my car at the moment.

If you're reading this ACspeedtech, can you add this to your job list please?
