mrbubba,

I can send some pics, let me dig it out tomorrow. I only put about 8000 miles on it. I got it off someone on the forum but can't remember who!

It sounds amazing.

Does it give you any more power and does it affect your warranty?

Nothing worth talking about and any mod should be declared!

I didn't mean insurance.....naturally i would declare it if it were fitted......I meant the Mini warranty.

Can't see why it would have any effect as MINI sell them and will fit it for you.

Yes it does affect warranty - any aftermarket part does, even if supplied and fitted by MINI. Or so my dealer told me when they fitted mine. However, it would only affect warranty in so far as it could be demonstrated to have contributed or caused the fault or issue you are claiming for under warranty. So if for example if your turbo goes pop it would be hard to show an exhaust backbox caused that since it's literally at the tail end of the combustion process and the turbo is at the start. Conversely, if you fitted a different airpipe to the turbo then your warranty claim WOULD be invalid if the turbo failed - and this has happened to a tM member.

As for performance, it has no effect whatsoever as its the same bore as the OEM exhaust. However, you will find yourself revving harder to hear the raucous roar and pops and bangs, so expect fuel economy to suffer Wink mine did.
