I have recently purchased a R35 and after a week still can't remove the smile of my face. :) :)

I would however love a better sounding exhault but dont want to affect the warranty.

If its only nismo exhaults that keep the warranty intact what do they sound like and whats the cost fitted ?

Get a y-pipe, GTC or Miltek. 400 squids or so; all you need.

Nismo is £7k and sounds similar to stock.

Hi.

Warranty not an issue with a y pipe. But you will need to tell your insurer. Go on the Miltec website and they give a list of suppliers and fitters. :D

Technically it is non-standard, so it voids the warranty, but in practice I would fit it without worrying.

It is now a very common mod and a number of HPCs fit them.

Not sure who does them in Kent.

For nissan to deny any warranty claim through the addition of a y pipe, they would need to prove that the y pipe caused that failure.

Now i've not seen any poll, but i reckon 75% of R35 owners on this forum have the y pipe.

I don't believe the Nismo parts actually keep UK warranty ? it's only case in Japan.

In any case the only part of the warranty that is void is on the aftermarket y-pipe.

Y-pipe / cat removal highly unlikely to be the direct cause of a VR38 or GR6 failure given the known causes of these. Although cat removal can effect AFR (recommend a remap :p)

If you fancy GTC 90mm Steel 304 Y-pipe we have dealers in your area who can fit in around 20 mins :)

I thought AMD were Audi/VW experts???

Loss of power higher up with a Y pipe and would need a re map....is this right?

Fitting the pipe is easy and I'm up for that but not keen on getting any old bod to re map

They deal with a number of manufacturers which certainly includes Audi and VW.

I spoke to my servicing dealer today and the situation as quoted " over 70% of our clients have fitted Y pipes or exhausts as yet no problems , Nissan will not invalidate the cars warranty if you fit a Y pipe , BUT , if any warrantable issue arises that can be directly attributed to the fitment of the Y pipe the warranty will be invalidated , unquote " . This is word for what what I was told today , all the best , B.T.W. i am having one fitted Thursday by Milltek so by all means drop me a line after then and I will let you know what its like.All the best and drive safely .
