Mine's made by a company called CGR Automotive in Rotherham, it's beautifully built and really looks the part, and I think (more importantly) it sounds great. Cost is in the £2 - £3k region; check out their website.

I was trying to find the name of yours COB, for this thread. It’s the best I’ve ever heard. (Decent microphone sets it apart from other videos too)

If DeMort shows your video it’s got to be a done deal.

Cheers James - although actually the video on their website was done by another member on here, Neil911, not me.
Mine sounds pretty much the same though. You're so right about the importance of a decent microphone; lots of vids use an iPhone or similar, and don't properly capture the real sound.

I've no dog in this fight, but wow that sounds good! Gets my vote over the various videos I've heard.

As an aside, I'd not realised how much PDK slurred between upchanges like a torque converter auto... I imagined it would be more instant like a BMW M3 DCT.

Personally i would save your money, and go for a Sharwerks Bypass pipe. I am now on my second one, the sound is awesome and worth every penny. My first one was for my 997 GTS,i have just brought one for my 991 GT3.

Can’t recommend them more highly, if you do decide to go ahead i will put you in touch with the owner.

Not wishing to hi-jack, but I'm thinking of one of the x pipe options.
Is there any real reason why one should pay double for a sharkwerks, over a topgear? It's a pair of steel tubes welded together right?

If you don’t value all the work Sharkwerks put in, then just buy some pipes welded together.

I’m not trying to be funny, really would like to know what makes that value.
Genuine question.

Haywood and Scott or Milltek are identical, cheaper, and British.

DeMort, do keep us informed on what your customer goes for. Thumb

Fully concur with the SharkWerks centre muffler by-pass option.

By far the best sound and their customer service is special.. Thumb
